: Everyman: Waltopia - Disney's Greatest Dream?

The King is dead! - Long live the King! ... Or at least the King's ideas.
Almost 20 years ago Walt Disney, the King of Fantasy, left his empire with a blueprint which promised to point the way to hope and optimism for mankind in the future.
Disney called it EPCOT (an Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow) and was confident that his organisation had the ability and unity to re-educate humanity for the 21st century. Today the Utopian dream has become reality, attracting, entertaining and educating thousands a day with all the skills and gusto at its disposal. But can a corporation founded on the antics of Mickey Mouse ever be capable of tackling the true nature of man, and seriously shape his future character?

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.
