: A Season of Australian Films

Australia is now recognised as a producer of high-quality cinema. Starting next week BBC2 provides a season of films from contemporary drama to thrillers and comedy.

: The Visit: PC Philip Olds

First of three programmes with Desmond Wilcox 1: The Rage
He was gunned down by a thief during an armed robbery. His assailant was sent to prison for life and Philip Olds found himself serving a life sentence of his own - in a wheelchair.
Bitterness and rage filled his life. Then he heard of 'miracle' experiments being conducted in America. The paralysed could be made to walk, with a computer and electric shocks. Philip Olds was determined to become the first British guinea pig on the experimental programme, even though it could fail - or kill him. For him, the preferable alternative was suicide:
'I've been robbed of death.
I'm a cripple. But I don't have to accept it,' he said. Talking to him was like a conversation with a blow torch. His irony takes the skin off you. It stuns you that a man who used to plod the beat can produce this dramatic effect.

: Plague of Hearts

with Dr Michael O'Donnell Fighting Back
If present trends continue,
Britain will soon be the world leader in deaths from coronary heart disease. The
'plague' will be more virulent here because other countries have started to fight back. In the last of this series, Michael O'Donnell investigates some of the major campaigns being fought in the United States. If Britain achieved the same reduction in heart disease, 40,000 lives a year would be saved.

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.
