The Hi-Tech Trail to Moscow
Ironically, some of the most lethal weapons aimed at us by the Russians contain key components designed here in the West. To acquire western high technology the Russians are waging an intensive campaign of illegal purchase, smuggling and spying. Above all, they rely on greedy middlemen. Michael Cockerell has traced the hi-tech trail and talked to the dealers in embargoed strategic goods-some on the run from the law, others facing long prison terms.

The third of four programmes starring Peter O'Toole as General Flavius Silva

3: Silva has failed to conquer Masada in the allotted six months ordered by the Roman Senate. While the rebels have been living in comparative ease in their mountain fortress, the Tenth Legion has suffered a number of disasters and progress on building the assault ramp with slave labour is painfully slow.
But the sinister arrival of Falco, a scheming upstart from Rome, is to herald a new and dreadful reign of terror.

: Making the Most of the Micro

The second series of The Computer Programme
7: Sounds Interesting
Most modern personal computers can produce sounds of some kind - including music and speech. Ian McNaught-Davis and musician David Ellis investigate the making of simple and more sophisticated sounds, and they examine the elements of a music editor - the musical equivalent of a word processor. The programme also begins to look at languages other than BASIC.

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.
