It was in Vichy that the great Gertrude Stein said: 'A talk show is a talk show is a talk show', and was then pelted with garlic. French enlightenment or a display of envy that Wogan is not screened in France?

: Wildlife on One

Sulawesi: Island of Discovery Narrated by David Attenborough
There is just one island where you will find black apes, giant possums, pigs with curling tusks, green and tube-nosed bats, birds which bury their young and spectral tarsiers - real live 'gremlins'. It is
Sulawesi, where Asia meets
Australia, bringing together a unique and rarely seen variety of animals. These puzzled the famous naturalist Alfred Wallace more than 100 years ago, and today scientists are finding that there is still much more to discover; and some of these discoveries could even benefit us.

: Soldiers

A History of Men in Battle M 13 parts
Presented by Frederick Forsyth
1: The Face of Battle
The battlefield is an arena of accident and chance. The opening programme of the series illustrates how, down the ages, the experience of battle has changed for soldiers in combat. It takes as its centrepiece the Battle of Waterloo.
Waterloo lies in the cockpit of Europe where for centuries armies from almost every nation have met and clashed, an area where Caesar fought with his Roman legions;
English archers defeated the French knights at Crecy and Agincourt; Marlborough won the Battle of Ramillies; the armies of the First World War died in the mud of the Flanders Fields. In 1940 the tanks and aircraft of the German blitzkreig swept past this ancient battle area. It is an appropriate vantage point to view the changing face of battle.

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.
