: Tomorrow's World at Large

with Judith Hann
On the Trail of the Big Cat For 20 years or more there have been 'big cat' sightings all over the UK. From sedate Surrey to the wilds of Scotland, ordinary people turn up at police stations claiming to have seen ferocious wild cats prowling the countryside. Mass hysteria perhaps? Or is there more to it? Judith Hann sets out to discover if Britain's wildlife now includes a large feline carnivore, and discovers that the answer is stranger than anyone supposed....

: Dive to Midnight Waters

A Quest for Creatures of the Deep Ocean
Imagine sitting in an armchair, locked in a clear plastic bubble, for a journey almost a kilometre down into the Pacific Ocean off
California. A crane lowers you into the water. Then, cut loose from the cable, your sub sinks. Despite huge pressures, a galaxy of soft-bodied creatures are revealed in the sub's lamps, drifting about as if in outer space. Many light up to produce a dazzling 'living' firework display.

: Crimewatch UK

The programme that asks you, the viewer, to turn crimefighter with Nick Ross and Sue Cook Last month, more than
1,000 viewers called with information about the deaths of Susan Maxwell and Caroline Hogg. This month, the latest news on the enquiry - and the case of Jason Swift.
Jason was 14 when he ran away from home in June last year - he was found dead in November. Detectives know he was on the south coast in July and possibly back near his north London home in early November. To find his killer, police need your help to build a full picture of Jason's last weeks.
You may think your recollection is unimportant, but last month's calls again led to arrests.
Supt David Hatcher and PC Helen Phelps report from the Incident Desk.
If you can help, call
Crimewatch on [number removed]anytime from 10.0 pm to midnight.

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.
