Destiny by DAVID EDGAR
The death of a Conservative MP causes a bye-election in a West Midlands town. At first, the campaign between the major parties follows a familiar pattern. But an extreme right-wing racialist party intervenes, a strike by Asian foundry-workers becomes an election issue, and the campaign approaches a bitter and violent climax.

Ten films about the fascinations, the frustrations and the working environment of professional engineers. 4 : BOB ALLISON
As the Chief Engineer of the Scottish Division of the British Steel Corporation he is responsible for doubling the steel-making capacity of his division by 1980. His own favourite project is the new £200-million ore terminal at Hunterston on the Clyde Estuary, which is being opened this year in spite of local opposition and a falling world demand for steel.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
