The fifth of eight programmes about self-defence presented by Sarah Kennedy
If you've missed the last bus and can't get a taxi, then the offer of a lift in a car can seem heaven-sent. Nine times out of ten it's perfectly genuine, but occasionally the situation looks like getting dangerously out of control. What should you do? What should you say? We hear from three women who dealt successfully with difficult encounters in cars and Judith teaches
Sarah a trick to deter a persistent Lothario in a car.

: Heart of the Matter

with David Jessel
In Northern Ireland going to church is not just a statement of faith, it's a declaration of identity. When The Rev David Armstrong crossed the road from his Presbyterian church in Limavady to wish the Catholic congregation 'merry Christmas' he violated the unwritten rules of his community. Censured by his church elders, he's now torn between his ecumenical vision of Christianity and his pastoral duty to his parish. DAVID JESSEL visits the street in Limavady where Catholic faces Protestant, and asks, 'can the rules ever be rewritten?'

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.
