: Haley's Comet: The Roots Phenomenon

Written by JOHN SANDILANDS Narrated by IAN HOLM
One of the biggest television audiences ever was drawn to Roots, the saga of an American slave family: The impact on American life was immense. The book, by black ex-US coastguard ALEX HALEY , on which it was based, promises to join the all-time best-sellers. What has the phenomenon meant to Haley, who spent 12 years of his life tracing his family history back to its African origins, and has the impact of Roots survived its first shockwaves?
Film editor ARTHUR SOLOMON Producer TONY LARYEA
(There's another chance tn sec Roots, starting next Tuesday at 9.0 pm on BBC2)

: The Sky at Night

Does Anything Ever Happen on the Moon?
The moon has long been regarded as a dead world; but is this completely true? Astronomers have described faint coloured patches and local ' fogs', which are sometimes thought to be gases seeping through from below the ground.
Patrick Moore discusses these ' transient phenomena', and also describes the eclipse of the moon which will take place on 16 September.

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.
