: The Story Beneath the Sands

with John Coston
The Lost Palaces of Nineveh
Thousands of years ago Nineveh was a great city, so large that it took Jonah three days to walk across it. Then the city fell into decay and vanished: even its whereabouts were forgotten. But 150 years ago the palaces of Nineveh were rediscovered and with them the whole history of the Kings of Assyria which had been lost for thousands of years. Today JOHN COSTON visits Baghdad and the river Tigris to tell the story of the once-great city of Nineveh. Storyteller

: Scars of Autumn

A Journey Back to Poland Written and narrated by Sir Hugh Greene
In September 1939, three British foreign correspondents based in Poland found themselves caught up in the outbreak of the war. By car, they travelled across Poland to escape into neutral Romania and flee the German blitzkrieg.
In the autumn of 1977 they returned once more to retrace their wartime footsteps and see how much of old Poland still remains. The three correspondents were Hugh Carleton-Greene and Clare Hollingworth of the Daily Telegraph, and Patrick Maitland of The Times. CLARE HOLLINGWORTH is now the Daily Telegraph's Defence Correspondent; SIR HUGH GREENE is now a publisher and brewer, and a former Director-General of the BBC; and PATRICK MAITLAND is now the Earl of Lauderdale.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
