: The Rainhill Story

The Great Locomotive Trials
Stephenson's famous railway engine Rocket won the Rainhill Locomotive Trials in 1829. One hundred and fifty years later, replicas of Rocket and two of its competitors were built to re-live the day that the railway age began. Anthony Burton follows the construction of the replicas, and tells the story of the efforts made by the pioneering engineers to perfect a machine that, as history knows, served the world for a century and a half -the steam locomotive.

: The Visit: Marjorie's Quest

with Desmond Wilcox
The last of four programmes
The Amazonian Indian boy she's loved and cared for over the past six years is at risk. Marjorie Jackson, the wife of the distinguished plastic surgeon who is building a new face for the boy David, wants to adopt him legally - to protect his future. At present he has no papers, no real identity - he's an illegal immigrant in Britain, and an illegal alien in America.
What does it take to get him a passport? - to turn his name from Lopez to Jackson? Can Marjorie, by journeying deep into the Amazonian jungle, find proof of his identity? Perhaps even discover his real parents? In a journey to match any professional explorer, the surgeon's wife from the Glasgow suburbs sets out into the Peruvian jungle. The sequel to last night's documentary travels across the Andes, and by dug-out canoe, with Marjorie.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
