: Star Trek: Assignment Earth

TV's most famous sci-fi series starring William Shatner as Captain Kirk, Leonard Nimoy as Mr Spock

According to cosmic records, the old world narrowly escaped disaster in the year 1968 and Captain Kirk is assigned the task of discovering what happened. Back-tracking through time, the historical research mission assumes more than academic interest when the mysterious Mister Seven makes an abrupt appearance and Captain Kirk is brought down to earth with a vengeance!

: Panorama: Are the Donors Really Dead?

The smiling, happy faces of the people whose lives have been transformed by a new heart or kidney catch the headlines; few think about the anonymous donor. But how did the doctors decide that the donor was dead before they operated to remove his vital organs; how could they switch off his life-support machine when his heart was still beating? Tonight's Panorama examines the way we diagnose 'brain death' in potential transplant donors, and discovers that some of the doctors best qualified to know have evidence that the British system isn't foolproof. To illustrate how fatal mistakes can be made, Richard Lindley talks to three apparently 'brain dead' people about how they survived, when in Britain they could have been declared dead.

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.
