: Last of the Summer Wine

With the notable exception of Compo, Nora Batty is not used to anyone looking at her. So when her husband Wally takes an unnatural interest in those parts of her body she stands on, she is understandably unnerved. It is, of course, all part of Compo, Clegg and Foggy's attempts to settle a question of size once and for always.

: Everyman

Hearts and Minds
The first of two films about South-East Asia, ten years after the Vietnam War. Thailand
Since the end of the Vietnam War ended, the Buddhist kingdom of Thailand has become a front-line state, facing a unified Communist
Indo-China across the Mekong River.
The legacies of the American presence are still clearly visible in Thailand -in its highly developed consumer society, powerful military elite and over one million prostitutes. In coping with the shock of the last decades, the Sangha- Buddhist clergy-play a crucial role. But, like the Christian churches of the West, the monks themselves are divided.
This Everyman film reveals a society where the beliefs of Buddhism have become weapons in the struggle for the hearts and minds of its people.

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.
