.. Spike Milligan
A series of four encounters with journalist and broadcaster Ian Wooldridge
Actor, author, loon, Goon, and manic-depressive, Spike has been provoking laughter and tears ever since The Goons started in the early 1950s. A sensitive, creative genius to some, and a childish, temperamental freak to others, he is still the champion of children and actively concerned with the kind of world they will inherit.

: The Late Film: Viva Maria

Brigitte Bardot , Jeanne Moreau with George Hamilton
Viva Bardot ! Viva Moreau ! Two great screen goddesses star as two very different Marias who find themselves in the small South American state of San Miguel in 1907 at the height of the revolution season. The girls decide to use their contrasting, and very specialised talents in the people's cause. Louis Malle 's dazzling production, shown here in its English version, is an enchanting, spectacular extravaganza.

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.
