starring
Christopher Connelly Forrest Tucker
1861: When the small township of St Joseph, Missouri, decides that it has had enough of its two noisiest and most troublesome inhabitants, they decide on an ingenious way to get rid of them.
Mark Twain and his rival Mike Fink will undertake a hazardous, and lengthy race to the Pacific Ocean. This lively film, suitable for all the family, tells of the unlikely and often humorous race that formed the basis of a famous story by one of America's greatest writers.

: GrafSpee

Written and narrated by DAVID HOWARTH
On 13 December 1939 four ships - the German pocket battleship Admiral Graf Spee and three British cruisers, the Exeter, Ajax and Achilles - fought the Battle of the River Plate 250 miles off the coast of South America. For the British it was a spectacular and heart-warming victory. For the Germans the battle was the first link in a chain of events which led a few days later to the blowing up of the Graf Spee just outside Montevideo harbour and the tragic, though honourable, suicide of her captain, Hans Langsdorff.
Just before Christmas last year survivors of the action, from Germany, Britain and New Zealand (Achilles was a ship of the New Zealand navy) went to South America to commemorate together an episode remarkable for the Second World War in that both sides look back on it without the slightest ill-feeling.
This special documentary tells the story of the battle and its after-math, and shows how men who 40 years ago were trying to blow each other to pieces now meet m mutual friendship and respect.

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.
