: The Secret War: Still Secret

The last of six programmes
Last year, for the first time, Her Majesty's Government opened some of the files on 'Ultra' to public scrutiny. Now, historians can perhaps fairly judge the importance of the British Decoding of the German 'Enigma' machine during World War II. But deeper information about the goings-on at Bletchley Park, home of the British Government Code and Cipher School, remains an intriguing mystery.

: Everyman

Bees in their Bonnets
Malcolm Muggeridge and James Cameron have been friends and fellow-journalists for 30 years. Both men have faced the reality of empty phrases like ' moral issues', witnessing the explosion of the atom bomb and seeing at first hand death and deprivation, politics and power in most parts of the world. From their experiences they have developed idiosyncratic but radically differing views on the world and the struggles of man to stay in it. Tonight they meet on television for the first time.

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.

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.
