: Antiques Roadshow

This week: Troon
Arthur Negus and a team of Britain's leading experts from the world of art and antiques continue on the road. They meet the public informally and discuss treasured possessions brought along for their assessment. The programmes, presented by Angela Rippon , are full of information, excitement and surprises as people discover the truth about objects that have, sometimes, been gathering dust for years. Perhaps the biggest surprise is that there are more ' finds' than disappointments.

: Friends

Mother and daughter Winifred Rushforth and Diana Bates are both pensioners, both doctors and both practising psychoanalysts. Dr Rushforth, now 95, was in almost at the beginning of the new science of psychoanalysis, and for over 30 years was at the top of her profession.
Her daughter's contrasting attitude to life is reflected both in a quieter lifestyle and a very different approach to therapy.
As mother and daughter, they have always been close. As medical colleagues and friends, they have developed a relationship which goes beyond ordinary family ties.

: AJP - History Man

A. J. P. Taylor , broadcaster, controversialist, political activist, and the doyen of English historians, is 75 this week.
The wit, sharpness and clarity of his writings, and his popular presentation of history on television, have made him one of the nation's favourite intellectuals. His teaching has become legendary. Many of his books, such as English History 1914-45 and The Origins of the Second World War, are classics.
Yet his career has had some strange and unpredictable turns. A true radical, he has rarely been far from the centre of controversy. Tonight Ludovic Kennedy is joined by two leading historians, Asa Briggs , Provost of Worcester College, Oxford, and Professor Robert Skidelsky of Warwick University, in talking to A. J. P. TAYLOR about his life, work and beliefs.

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.
