: Robbie: A Ripe Old Age

Famous people are always news, but the six famous people in this series are news for a special reason. They're all past the normal retiring age, but they're working as hard and as satisfyingly as ever. One describes himself as a workaholic, and Fyfe Robertson says you could use this handy word for them all. They find their greatest satisfaction and fulfilment in their work. And in the volume and speed of her output as a romantic novelist Barbara Cartland is surely the most astonishing work addict of the six. In one year, apart from other time-consuming activities that include endless private kindnesses, she has dictated novels faster than many of her public can read them - about one a fortnight. At 78 Barbara Cartland is still the Organised Woman who always does it now, and she talks as fluently and unstoppably as she writes.

: Decision: 1: To Angela and Peter...

with John Pitman
A series of six programmes which follow the fortunes of people who have decided to risk a dramatic change in their lives.
When she was a baby, Angela [name removed] contracted a disease which has left her today almost completely paralysed and entirely reliant on her husband, Peter. Major surgery not only failed to help her walk again, it also left her very vulnerable if ever she became pregnant.
Last year, Angela decided to be sterilised - but before this, she also decided to give herself just one final chance of becoming a mother - even though doctors said it was so dangerous that it could kill her. This is the story of how Angela and a skilled medical team set about trying to produce a baby. What Angela hopes will be 'my miracle baby'.

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.
