Michael Wood together with Sarah Greene launches a major project to mark the 900th anniversary next year of William the Conqueror's Domesday Book. It will create a new 20th-century Domesday Book, using the most modern information technology on interactive video discs.
More than a million people from over 12,000 schools and other organisations are to help compile a contemporary snapshot of life as they see it. This will become a unique source of facts, figures, graphics and photographs prepared by the communities it depicts. Combined with data from national and official archives, it will make information about Britain more easily available to everyone than ever before.

: Omnibus presents: Hancock - From East Cheam to Earl's Court

Tony Hancock committed suicide in Australia in 1968. From 1954 to 1961 he was one of the most acclaimed and certainly the most popular of BBC radio and television comedians.
This film celebrates the years when Hancock, 'the lad 'imself, was at his peak. It includes many extracts from some of his most memorable half-hours including Twelve Angry Men, The Ladies' Man, The Radio Ham, The Bowmans and The Blood Donor.
The film looks back on Hancock's career in the company of his friends and collaborators, among them scriptwriters Alan Simpson and Ray Galton, radio producer Dennis Main Wilson and BBCtv producer Duncan Wood, along with Bill Kerr, Patrick Cargill, Hugh Lloyd, Patricia Hayes and Eric Sykes.

In this riotous look at school life
Conor MacMichael is a dedicated teacher of maladjusted teenagers with a variety of social and sexual problems. Her efforts to understand and help her difficult pupils and to improve conditions at Selkirk School are continually frustrated by the overbearing, pompous headmaster, Terence Sutton. There are problems in her relationship with her boyfriend too, when her preoccupation with her job spills into her private life.

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.
