: Think Again

Johnny Ball invites you to sit down and says Are You Aware of Why You Wear What You Wear? Each day Johnny takes an entertaining excursion into an aspect of everyday life that you might De taking for granted.
Today he delves into the past, present and future of textiles. Did you know that you are wearing either animal, vegetable or mineral - that your socks could have been growing on a bush-and that some materials end up on the moon?
Meanwhile, get weaving with this-which is the odd material out: leather, cotton, wool, silk?*

: Cricket: Fifth Test

The Cornhill Insurance
Test Series
England v Australia from Old Trafford
First day
England and Australia have played 22 Tests at Old Trafford,
England winning 6 to Australia s
4. Twenty-five years ago, in what will always be remembered as 'Laker's Match', Jim Laker took 19 wickets - for 37 and 10 for 53 -to set a world record that is all but unbeatable.
More recently, in 1964, Australia made 656 for 8 declared in their first innings-still the highest score in an Old Trafford Test-thanks largely to an opening partnership of 201 between Lawry (106) and Simpson who went on to score 311. England replied with 611 with Dexter (174) and Barring-ton (256) adding 246 for the third wicket - the match, not surprisingly, ending in a draw. PETER WEST introduces the whole of this morning's play.

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.
