For Asian girls to get involved in sport is itself noteworthy, but for a girl to go on and be selected for an English international squad is, to say the least, unusual. Dippy Shahans is an 18-year-old from Southall, London, whose skill in karate has landed her a place in the national squad. Binda Rai visits her during a training session and talks to her about her success.
Painting on rice grains, tiny seeds and single strands of human hair sounds unbelievable, but Shri Chanan Singh has made a hobby of it.

When Dr Beeching took his axe to the rural railway network few cuts were as savage, or as deeply resented, as that of the entire Somerset and Dorset system. Its staff took great pride in working this steeply graded line over the Mendip Hills, and a strong sense of family loyalty existed. Before it was all swept away in 1966 Bath enthusiast Ivo Peters recorded the railway on film. Director ANDREW JOHNSTON Producer DENNIS DICK

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.
