: The British Connection?

Twelve films from different parts of the UK which explore some of the complexities of people's sense of identity.
1: Merthyr Tydfil
Merthyr was the first major industrial centre in Wales, perhaps Britain, maybe the world. Today it's haunted by the abandoned ruins of its once great iron works and coal mines; yet it remains a confident, almost a cocky place.
It's one of the most cosmopolitan communities in Wales and the vast majority of its people haven't spoken Welsh for years; yet it's administered by Plaid Cymru. What is it then, Welsh or British?

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.
