: International Air Fair, Biggin Hill

This year is the 40th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, and Biggin Hill Airfield - in the front-line 40 years ago as a fighter station - again stages the International Air Fair with displays from aircraft old and new from many countries. The world-famous Red Arrows have recently re-equipped with their new aircraft, the Hawk. Today they make their first television appearance at a major air display in the new aircraft, demonstrating their incomparable precision flying. Together with them, there will be acrobatic skill of the highest order from other service and civil pilots, parachuting from the RAF Falcons and aeroplanes to stir many memories. Raymond Baxter introduces highlights from this exciting occasion.

: Heart of the Matter

At the heart of the events which make news lie deeper concerns: the principles on which decisions are based, the effective values and beliefs which are shaping society.
In this week's filmed report, Peter France considers, with those most directly concerned, the strengths and weaknesses of the values behind this week's headlines.

: Good for Business ...

The last of five programmes Under New Management
Coral Leisure made their name and money with betting, bingo and casinos. But in 1977 they paid £34-million to buy the Centre Hotel chain.
The programme follows Coral's strategy for reducing Centre Hotels' almost total reliance on tourism in favour of the more predictable business trade. But to attract the businessman, additional investment will be needed to upgrade the hotels and lose their strong 1960s image.
But 1980 has started badly with tourists being put off by the strong pound, and businessmen at home ever more cost-conscious as interest rates hold at 17 per cent. Commentary by MICHAEL DEAN

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
