: Inside Story: A Run for Your Money

With his finger-tip controls, 'sleeper' cab, and the luxury of continental motorway facilities, Bob McAngus - juggernaut lorry driver - is an aristocrat among routiers.

But to be a succesful aristocrat he must also know a thing or two about the ways of the world, and in one mission, a journey from Felixstowe to Trieste, McAngus shows how juggernaut drivers deal with the complicated web of Common Market regulations - and how to offer those international gestures of goodwill.

: Breakthrough: The Miracle Drug

The last of four programmes with John Craven

In 1940, when a German invasion was expected daily and London was being bombed, quietly and secretly in an Oxford laboratory, Howard Florey was working on a vital discovery: how to turn penicillin into a safe and reliable medicine. The astonishing cures this new drug achieved soon became front-page news and even to scientists it seemed like a miracle.

Many of the people who worked with Florey are still alive and in today's Breakthrough programme they share their memories of the exciting moments of discovery with John Craven.

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.
