: Just Barbara

Barbara Woodhouse , in conversation with Joan Bakewell , reveals some of the highlights of her life. There cannot be many people who have broken horses in the Argentine and had a finishing school in Switzerland closed down. There can be even fewer who have also produced films for the cinema and published their own books. Add to that the record of having trained over 17,000 dogs, and you know you are dealing with a unique personality.

A cruise around the Greek islands is some people's idea of bliss but When you fit a lot of ports into a few days' sailing, does the bliss wear thin? John Carter reports.

With so many more people now taking short-break holidays, Sarah Kennedy sets out to find a selection of great British weekends. In the first of six reports she goes this week to Lincoln.
In the studio, the latest news from the travel and holiday scene.

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.
