: Comic Roots

Four films in which comic stars dig up the roots of their humour. 1: Les Dawson's Lanes
Pawnbrokers, poverty, policemen and boxers-these are a few of Les's Collyhurst memories. But it was a Manchester community which stuck together and lives on in the minds of those who have left it to the ravages of the developers.
Lancashire mill folk and Blackpool landladies are also a fertile source of fun for Les - so they feature in this amiable amble around the people and places of his past. with Roy Barraclough

: Panorama

Test-tube babies are no longer a miracle-another 100 will be bom by the end of this year. But the booming technology for helping to create human life has raised difficult questions of ethics for doctors and parents.
Since Panorama first reported such new techniques as freezing human embryos and cloning, doctors and scientists in Britain have themselves been examining what lessons should be learned from this work, and whether it should be subjected to further control.
Tonight Margaret Jay updates the file on Experimenting with Life.

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.
