: Domesday

Five programmes written and presented by Michael Wood 2: The Country
For 10,000 years the mass of the British people lived and worked on the land before leaving it in the early
19th century. It is ingrained in our souls as a lost golden age. Michael Wood journeys deep into the English countryside to explore that world which we have lost and asks just how and why we became the first nation to abandon our rural roots for the new age of the city.
He travels from the isolated valleys of Dartmoor where families till the land of their
Domesday forefathers, across the heart of England to find the lone survivor of the old medieval open-field system, to the frontier land of the east where generations have asserted their independence and pushed back the sea.
In these landscapes, Michael Wood seeks clues to the continuing nature of our society and to the origins of our Englishness.

: Songs of Praise

for Advent Sunday
When the Romans invaded Britain, they chose Cirencester as the administrative centre in the west. Next to London, it became the largest town in the country. Set in some of the loveliest scenery in England, locals today refer to it as the capital of the Cotswolds.
Ian Gall joins Christians of the area in the parish church of St John the Baptist as they prepare to celebrate the coming of the Lord. He meets LUCY COLE , for whom Christian faith brought release from the torments of teenage years spent dabbling with drugs and the occult. He Visits JOAN RAILSTON-BROWN in the Niccol Centre, where the over-55s learn to develop their talents in the arts.

: Everyman: The Miracle of Intervale Avenue

"The Bronx is burning!" - victory cry of the 60s revolution. Today the fires have long gone out, leaving empty shells of buildings, a society of street-survivors, whores and hustlers. Yet in the heart of this devastated world a small community of elderly Jews clings on - Mr Sachs the baker, Dave Lenten, comic and signpainter, Mrs Miroff, a seamstress protected by her street-wise gang of 'bums'. Everyman tells the remarkable story of their survival and of their battered synagogue - the sole focus of their faith, their pride, and their history.

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.
