: The Day the Universe Changed

A personal view by James Burke in ten parts 5: Infinitely Reasonable
In 1545 the Pope called an emergency summit in the Italian city of Trento. The idea was to deal with growing threats to the authority of the Catholic
Church. Predictably a book on astronomy just published by a Polish priest was hardly noticed. But a century later the book had been banned, its teaching forbidden, and it had plunged the Church into crisis.
When the dust finally settled, the universe was a different place. Because of that book and the events which followed we can explain the curved path of a cannon ball, say what time the sun will rise tomorrow, put men on the moon, and predict a heavenly visitation early in 1986...

: The 20th Century Remembered

by Barbara Castle with Donald MacCormick
In 1967 Harold Wilson 's Cabinet faced a serious economic crisis which led to the devaluation of the pound. Barbara Castle was in that Cabinet and she recalls the secrecy surrounding economic decisions, which meant that she and her Cabinet colleagues were often shut out from any discussion of the economic situation. In the third of four programmes she reflects on perhaps the most dramatic year of her life, when she introduced In Place of Strife, her White Paper in favour of a new legal framework for trade unions and employers. This not only divided the Cabinet but met with stiff opposition from the unions. Research MONA ADAMS VALERIE SMITH

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.
