: Panorama

The Politics of Plenty
Starvation and drought have seized the conscience of the West: millions of pounds have been raised by ordinary people for the relief of the worst hit areas.
But governments have followed different priorities and different objectives.
While Marxist Ethiopia has received little Western aid, across the border in Kenya it's another story: billions of dollars have poured into a country whose government favours the West.
But even then, there's a price to be paid. Panorama reports on the problems of the country the Americans have called 'the shining star of Africa'.

: Crimewatch UK

The programme which asks you, the viewer, to turn crimefighter.
Serious recent crimes are dramatically reconstructed - the police show the evidence to date, and you could provide the clues they need. Four months ago a body was recovered from the bottom of Bristol Docks. It was the body of Mark Yendell, a British Rail steward. You could help track down his killer. In Hertfordshire a rapist struck three times recently - you might prevent a fourth. And in Essex, a family home is the scene of 90 minutes of night-time terror - three men are wanted.
Nick Ross and Sue Cook will be waiting for your calls in the Crimewatch studio. Police officers David Hatcher and Helen Phelps report on the latest crime news from the Incident Desk. If you can help, call the Crimewatch number: [number removed], any time from 9.25 to the end of the evening. And see Crimewatch Update at 11.35 pm.

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.
