: Blizzard's Wizard Woodwork

If you've ever wanted a computer desk, a hi-fi video centre, bunk beds or a rocking chair these are just a few of the items which Richard Blizzard will be making in his series of eight programmes.
4: The Computer Desk
Many homes today have the festoons of wire that announce the presence of a microcomputer. Richard Blizzard has designed a complete carrying box for the smaller types and a desk for the larger desktop models. In the garden he makes a garden dilly to carry all the tools and bags of compost to the job in hand.

: The Day the Universe Changed

A personal view by James Burke
1: The Way We Are
Five hundred years ago, people looked at the dawn and thought that they saw the Sun going round the Earth. If that seems stupid, ask what it would look like if it did go round the Earth. Exactly the same. It's your knowledge that tells you what you're seeing. You are what you know. When your knowledge changes, you change, and so does the universe.
From the US Air Defence
Centre in Colorado to Mount Everest and the Greek Islands, the first of ten programmes illustrates this basic theme of the series. It shows how to read the present for clues about what the universe used to be. And each time the universe changed, it gave us a part of modern life - helping to make us the way we are. Written and presented by JAMES BURKE

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
