: Sign Extra

A chance to see recent BBC programmes, with sign language and subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing. Open Space:
Snap Judgments
'Weddings are the number one thing, holiday snaps next, then pets ... or children.'
So says a technician from a photographic processing factory that deals with over 1,500,000 films a year. In this film, four photography students from Trent
Polytechnic in Nottingham explore why we take the photographs we do, tracing them back to family album conventions established in Victorian times. They reckon people could get far more out of photography, not by using fancy equipment, but by recognising it as a powerful means of communication - available to all of us.

: Heart of the Matter

The last in the series with David Lomax
Week by week as the events of the news unfold, moral dilemmas, controversies and questions are raised which cannot easily be compressed into the black and white summary of a bulletin or headline.
But these questions of public and private morality affect us all and inflame passions and prejudices many of us would rather ignore or try to hide. Reporter David Lomax looks at one of these issues, talks to those who ought to know, and tries to discover what is at the 'heart of the matter'. Film editor MICHAEL ALOOF

: Discovering Animals

Fourth of eight programmes on the mammals of Britain Presented by Tony Soper A bird-table is a common enough sight in British gardens, but a mammal-table isn't. Simply made, it will attract many of the smaller garden animals and allow you to observe undisturbed voles, shrews, mice and, if you're lucky, weasels.
And a bat-box built high up in the eaves may attract the world's only flying mammal. Series producer BRYN BROOKS Producer ERICA GRIFFITHS (R)

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.
