Bavaria and makes the most of local train and bus services for sightseeing.
The lure of the Greek Islands is particularly strong for young people who see them as offering low price, go-as-you-please holidays. Anne Gregg reports on the delights, and the pitfalls, of island hopping.
Derek Cooper concludes his journeys around Britain, reporting from Scotland.

: Omnibus

with Barry Norman
Paganini's violin music is not only ferociously difficult to play, but has inspired many stories about its devilish inspiration. This year is the 200th anniversary of his birth, and Salvatore Accardo , generally acclaimed to be the world's premier interpreter of Paganini's music, discusses the man and the myth and plays particularly fiendish examples.
Jonathan Miller explores what he calls the ' afterlife of plays'. Brian Aldiss , writer of science fiction classics at his home in Oxford, talks about his new book Helliconia Spring.

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.
