Expedition Sri Lanka with Simon Groom
Peter Duncan and Janet Ellis Hidden Treasure
' King Solomon in all his glory' was probably wearing a robe studded in jewels that came from Sri Lanka. The quarter-of-a-million pounds' worth of jewels Janet wears might have been mined within a stone's throw of the gems that were taken to the Court of King Solomon - and the methods of mining have hardly changed at all in the last 2,000 years. Peter delves deep down a black, smelly hole in Ratnapura and ends up with a treasure-trove of sapphires!

This Is Your Lunch
In the 1950s a British pop record was a large quiet piece of shellac; it cost 5/7d and was played on a radiogram. With songs like ' Singing the Blues ' and ' Little white bull', Tommy Steele dominated the Hit Parade, before moving on to noisier things.
Earlier today the Variety Club gave him a lunch at the Savoy Hotel.

: Secrets

' Whose file is it, anyway? ' one might ask. But the professionals - teachers, doctors, social workers - who oversee and record little sections of our lives, don't like us looking.
In Sacred Secrets, reporter Ed Boyle says ' This is your life' to a man whose personal childhood details littered a council dump. He confronts a psychologist who wrote damaging notes on the school records of a boy he'd never met.
He hears from a patient who was refused treatment by 12 doctors. The reason remains unknown-hidden in her file. And he examines a tragic case where the silence of hospital staff drove a man to attempt suicide.
Should we have more access to our flies? And in what circumstances? In the current debate, progressives in each profession say the files should be more open. but the rank and file still need persuading.

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.
