: The Monday Film: That'll be the Day

Starring David Essex, Rosemary Leach, Ringo Starr
Jim MacLaine is 18, good-looking, bright - and fed up. On the day of his A-level exams he decides that pop music, a taste of freedom and - hopefully - girls will prove more important than schooling.
David Essex plays Jim in this brilliantly evocative and humorous portrait of Britain in the late 50s and early 60s, seen through the intelligent but rebellious eyes of a young man.

: Alone

Ten years ago the trimaran Teignmouth Electron was found drifting in mid-Atlantic. Of Donald Crowhurst, the Somerset business-man who had entered her in the Sunday Times single-handed round-the-world race, there was no sign. Only when his logbooks were examined, did the world realise how tragic a voyage his had been. Jeremy James investigates the fact and fiction of Crowhurst's struggle with the sea and the lessons that have been learnt since about man going solo against the elements.

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.
