: Days of Revolution

Paris - the Spring of 1968 May 68: A student hurls a cobblestone at a phalanx of blackhelmeted police. Tear gas eddies round the Quartier Latin. Slogans sprout: ' Power is on the streets ', ' Imagination has taken power'. Ten million on strike. De Gaulle's mighty monolith of power shudders. The General disappears. Everything seemed possible.
May 78: France has enjoyed a decade of stability and prosperity, and in March voted herself five more years of the status quo. To the students of today, 68 is folklore, ancient history. The institutions of De Gaulle's Fifth Republic remain serene, unchallenged.
So what did happen in 68? And what has happened to the men and women of that unforgettable spring? ' They are older, richer, fatter - and their children don't throw stones at the policemen any more,' says one of the old soldiers of the Paris barricades. David Jessel listens to the echoes, investigates the ghosts of the movement which, for a few heady weeks ten years ago, set the streets, the country, and the 60s on fire.

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.
