: MacLeod's America

The Western Gate is the most sacred spot on earth for all American Indians. To them this unspoilt Californian peninsula is where the souls of the dead begin their journey to heaven. A century ago the white man came and outlawed the ancient Indian religion. More recently the hunger for energy led to the site being proposed for a natural gas plant. To the Indian nations it seemed time for an uprising.

: SOE - A Secret Army

The second of eight stories about the Special Operations Executive
Narrated by Michael Bryant One of the tasks of SOE in World War II was to raise guerrilla forces in countries occupied by the enemy. Nowhere was this more important than in France where the Allied armies were going to have to fight their way ashore on D-Day against heavy German odds.
SOE sent hundreds of agents - men and women - into France over three years between 1941 and 1944. It was patient, dangerous and deadly work but it paid off -with spectacular results!

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.
