: The Day the Universe Changed

A personal view by James Burke in ten parts 3: Point of View
In the early 15th century most people thought the earth was flat. Then some social climbers from
Florence went on a cultural package tour to Greece, while a Florentine architect tried his hand at painting, and the result was a new kind of geometry which was to change the world.
Art and architecture were transformed almost overnight. Town planning was born. And as the earth itself began to change shape, came an earth-shattering discovery in the Atlantic.... Written and presented by JAMES BURKE

: The 20th Century Remembered

by Barbara Castle with Donald MacCormick
A distinguished veteran of Westminster parliamentary politics, Barbara Castle held no less than four Cabinet posts during the Labour Governments of the 1960s and 70s. She is still an active politician, as a Member of the European Parliament for Greater Manchester North and Leader of the British Labour group in Strasburg. In the first of four programmes she looks back on her early life in Bradford and at Oxford, on her first job as a shop assistant in the 1930s and on her decision to move to London to look for work.
She talks to
Donald MacCormick about the people and events which shaped her early political career and led to her election as a Labour MP in 1945. She became
Parliamentary Private Secretary to a young, unknown President of the Board of Trade, Harold Wilson.

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.
