: The European Figure Skating Championships

featuring The Men from Strasbourg
Last year it was the bronze medal for ROBIN COUSINS - tonight it could be the gold. He is certainly the best and most exciting free skater in Europe and providing his earlier results have left him in contention, his five-minute free-skating programme will be the biggest test yet of his nerve and character.
News too of the Ice Dancing competition in which WARREN MAXWELL and JANET THOMPSON will be carrying British hopes.

: Omnibus

Everyone a Special Kind of Artist In 1976 Omnibus showed a film about the print and poster-maker
Ken Sprague.
It provoked an enormously enthusiastic public response.
Tonight KEN SPRAGUE visits Glasgow and four men who are artists in their spare time.
Bobby Starrett and Roy Fitzsimmons are shipyard workers on the Clyde. Brian McGeogh and Archie Forrest are teachers.
Each is a passionately committed artist and each in his own way illustrates the statement of Eric Gill: 'An artist is not a special kind of man; everyone is a special kind of artist.'

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.
