25th Anniversary Flies the World: Egypt
Step back in time to 1979 when Simon Groom, Christopher Wenner and Tina Heath explored one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World-the Pyramids. In blistering temperatures of 100°F, Simon nearly made it to the top of the biggest of the three pyramids at Giza near Cairo, while Tina kept cool inside the burial chamber of the Pharaoh Cheops, Chris dived to the bottom of the Red Sea with an underwater camera and Simon joined the long line of Blue Peter presenters who've bitten the sands of the desert, thrown from the back of a bad-tempered camel.

: The New Foresters

A series of four programmes featuring people who live and work in the New Forest.
2: When the Trees Bow Down
Although thousands of people visit the New Forest each year to admire the many varieties of trees that cover 30,000 acres, they probably don't realise that over half of the woodland is used for commercial growing.
Today Dennis Skillicorn meets RODNEY NEWBOROUGH , one of the Forestry Commission men responsible for marketing the timber. He also speaks to CLIFF FENNELL , a forester who works all year round cutting the timber. But all the wood doesn't find its way into the pulp and sawmills. GRETA HOPKIN-SON from Brockenhurst finds a different use for it: she spends her life searching for interesting pieces of wood to shape into beautiful wood sculptures. ' No art form has influenced me; I've been influenced purely by the wood.'
(Part 3 tomorrow at 1.45 pm)

: The Flying Boats

First of three programmes
The story of flying boats is one of ingenuity and enterprise; of style during the dying days of Britain's imperial grandeur; of Coastal Command's war against the U-Boats and of post-war scepticism that hastened their end. For all those who flew in them the flying boat was a part of aviation history that was unique and unforgettable. In this first programme David Lomax tells of the early days when Britain's first flying boat landed on the Solent in 1913, of First World War patrols in the North Sea and of RAF long-distance pioneering flights to open up routes to the Empire.

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.
