Limehouse Blues
At the height of its popularity three years ago, the SDP/Liberal Alliance ran well ahead of Labour and the Conservatives in the opinion polls. Since then its support has slipped.
Now the SDP faces a dilemma. One group of SDP activists thinks the party has strayed too far from the ideals of the founding Limehouse
Declaration and become too right wing. Others believe that only a merger with the Liberals can rekindle public enthusiasm.
Fred Emery reports on the arguments inside the SDP and, live from the Party Conference in Buxton, talks to its leader Dr David Owen.

: The Elephant Man

starring
John Hurt
Anthony Hopkins Anne Bancroft Wendy Hiller Freddie Jones
1884. Frederick Treves , an ambitious young
London surgeon, is intrigued by a sideshow freak billed as 'The Elephant Man' and, after the exhibition is closed by the police, pays the owner for a private viewing. To his amazement, he finds behind the appallingly disfigured and brutahsed exhibit a person,
John Merrick , of an intelligent and sensitive nature, whose rehabilitation he undertakes. How Treves tries to reconcile society with Merrick is the subject of this stunning true story of courage in the most terrible circumstances, with John Hurt brilliantly portraying the trapped soul within 'The Elephant Man'.

: The 20th Century Remembered

by Jo Grimond with Keith Kyle
In the first of three programmes Jo Grimond
(although now a life peer he still prefers plain 'Jo'), former Leader of the Liberal Party who doubled their number of seats in the House, and trebled their electoral strength, reflects on his early childhood in St Andrews and upon the influence of his family life and education at Eton and Balliol
College. He talks to Keith Kyle about the events of the 1920s and 1930s and how they shaped his political ideas, which eventually led to his standing for Parliament in 1945. He lost, but won the seat next time; he held it for 33 years as MP for Orkney and Shetland.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
