: The Song and the Story

with Isla St Clair Life in the Smoke
In the early 1800s England was the workshop of the world. Today it's hard to imagine what life must have been like in the early boom towns, for conditions were appalling. The streets abounded with children who had run away from the factories unable to stand the noise, the long hours and the harsh discipline. But amid all the grime and unrelenting work and poverty, people still sang, and what stories these songs tell.

: Cliff!

A series of four programmes 3: Travellin' Light
On tour with Cliff in America!
Although a musical superstar around the globe, Cliff Richard has been comparatively unknown in the United States since his last tour in 1960. Not surprisingly, Cliff has viewed the ' land of plenty ' as the last big professional hurdle in his career and his recent American tour as being of prime personal importance. This film offers you a ringside seat of the events, adventures and performances involved in this long-awaited 'Cliff Invasion'. As Cliff himself says, 'after 21 years' practice we should be just about ready'.

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.
