The great issues of the day touch us all-yet we usually have time for only brief flickers of information from our TV and newspapers. Heart of the Matter believes that we can learn more about the lives we lead by listening to people who have to confront the dilemmas all of us must face.
Each week DAVID JESSEL ventures into a matter of current concern; not to turn a spotlight on it, but to explore it from the inside-straight from the heart.

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.
