Franz Josef Strauss
Controversy, allegations and scandals have dominated the 30-year career of the German politician Franz Josef Strauss.
Dropped as Minister of Defence in 1962, he is now accused by his German critics of being intolerant and deceitful. But he is the Conservative candidate to be Germany's next Prime Minister.
Strauss insists he is the victim of an insidious international Communist campaign calculated to remove a determined opponent. If elected, Strauss promises to mobilise not only Germany, but all Western Europe with the strong leadership needed to face the Communist challenge. His critics. fear his leadership would endanger Germany and Europe.

: The Monday Film: Catch 22

1944: An American Air Force base somewhere in the Mediterranean. Shaken by the agonised death of a young gunner and by the increasing number of bombing raids, Capt Yossarian finds himself surrounded by encroaching insanity and constant death. He asks to be certified as mentally unfit to fly -but then learns about Catch 22. Since no sane person would want to fly, asking to be grounded suggests sanity. He must continue the missions. This mordantly black comedy about World War II features an all-star cast in an ambitious adaptation of a modern literary classic.

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.
