: Blue Peter

Goldie Special with Simon Groom

Britain's best-loved golden retriever gets a programme all to herself today starting with a flashback to her first-ever appearance on Blue Peter on 18 May 1978.

Simon joined Blue Peter on the same day too, and you can see how his training of Goldie has paid off as she comes face-to-face with cows, sheep, goats and chickens, to say nothing of giant St Bernards, without so much as a growl.
Training dogs the Groom way has been very successful - see if you can pick up a few tips to make your dog as good as Goldie!

Summit
The Venice Economic Summit, which took place last week, was attended by world leaders from seven countries. Firmly penned in the press centre nearly 3,000 journalists tried to find out what was going on. Patrolling the conference centre and the city were more than 10,000 armed men from Italy's three national police forces, with their guard boats, frogmen and helicopters. Out in the Adriatic an American aircraft carrier kept President Carter in touch with the world. Was there anything of substance going on or was it a public relations exercise for the people back home?

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.

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