: James Burke's Connections

Faith in Numbers
James Burke takes a look at 2,000 years of human ingenuity. In the fourth of ten historical detective stories, he searches for the clues that link yesterday's amazing inventions to the world we live in. What's so special about French knickers that makes it possible to print the radio TIMES? What's the connection between the rats of Troves and the American Census of 1890? And why did everyone get a soaking when they went to dinner with the Archbishop of Salzburg?

Ten programmes on the origins and growth of the Arab-Israeli dispute. 6: Towards a State
Thousands of Jewish refugees survived the Holocaust and the United States pressed Britain to admit them to Palestine. The Anglo-American dispute over these desperate people was the political fact which led, in the end, to Britain's departure from Palestine and to the creation of the State of Israel.

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.
