with Simon Groom, Sarah Greene and Peter Duncan
Lloyds of London
In 1688 Edward Lloyd opened a house near the River Thames for the new popular drink, coffee. Simon reports from the world's centre for Shipping Insurance, where the tragic Loss Book records disasters like the sinking of the Titanic, and rings the famous Lutine Bell from the French frigate captured by the British in 1793. For over a century the bell has been rung at Lloyds to warn of stop-press events-once for bad news, twice for good.

: The Richard Dimbleby Lecture: Garret FitzGerald

Garret FitzGerald, TD, former Taoiseach (Prime Minister) of Ireland, gives the tenth in this annual series of lectures before an invited audience at the Royal Society of Arts in London.

Tonight Garret FitzGerald examines one of the most intractable political dilemmas of our time-the Irish problem, or, perhaps more accurately, the Irish-British problem. He traces the complex senses of identity which lie behind the two traditions in Ireland. He asks how political structures can be devised in Ireland and between Ireland and Britain, to express and safeguard these identities. And he offers challenging and positive proposals for an evolution towards a new Ireland. Introduced by George Howard
Chairman of the BBC
(An edited version of this lecture will be printed in THE LISTENER dated 27 May)

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.
