: With a Little Help from the Chip

Christopher's
Magic Cupboard
Christopher is 4-years-old; he's bright, mischievous and full of life; but he's severely physically handicapped.
Now micro-technology is beginning to change his life. The 'chip' is very versatile - with it blind people can read books, deaf people can use the telephone, and people who couldn't speak or write at all can now make contact with the outside world.
Britain leads in the invention of micro-technology aids for disabled people. But can the miracle chip reach all those who need it?

: Match of the Day Live

Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal
Introduced by Jimmy Hill
New Year soccer live on TV starts with a cracker in prospect and the supremacy of north London at stake as Tottenham and Arsenal meet for the 100th time in the Football League. They kick off with the record exactly level: 39 wins a piece, followed by a draw for the 21st time when they clashed at Highbury in September.
Arsenal pleasantly surprised new manager GEORGE GRAHAM by leading the Championship into
December, against his belief that they are not yet ready for their ninth League title.
What Tottenham's new boss, DAVID PLEAT , is plotting in the battle of these fierce London rivals is something we are about to find out.

: Crisis!

A plane has been hijacked.
The facts are imaginary - the problem only too real.
What should the government do? Should it negotiate with the terrorists or should it send in the SAS? Will diplomatic pressure work? Is a secret deal possible? How can the government buy time?
In tonight's programme, a special crisis committee of distinguished politicians, with diplomatic, military and legal experts, grapples with these hypothetical problems. The response of the terrorists will emerge through dramatised news reports from Pamela Armstrong and Jeremy Paxman at the scene of the hijack. Which of the six different endings prepared by the production team occurs depends on how the committee reacts. Taking the decisions: The Rt Hon Francis Pym , mp The Rt Hon Roy Jenkins , MP and The Rt Hon
Gerald Kaufman , mp
They receive expert advice from Sir Anthony Parsons Lord Rawlinson, QC and Lt Gen Sir David Young
Chairing the committee is Professor Paul Wilkinson , a world expert on terrorism. Narrated by David Jessel Researcher SANDRA JONES

The Mighty Quinn
'No alcoholic voluntarily does anything about his or her problem. What we're up against is a disease, and a disease that is not curable.' To dry out in Detroit you go to the Sacred Heart
Rehabilitation Centre, one of the biggest treatment centres for alcoholics in the United States. It was founded by Fr Vaughn Quinn.
For an alcoholic, the path to self-knowledge and sobriety is a rough one. No one knows this better than Fr Quinn himself. His exuberant style conceals a first-hand . knowledge of his clients' despair: he is, in his own words, 'just a recovering alcoholic'.
This film follows the personal struggles of both clients and counsellors through the precarious business of alcoholic rehabilitation: from Quinn's search for drunks in his 1925 hearse on the streets of Detroit, through painful therapy groups, to three intensive days for a small group of residents on board The Mighty Quinn - a 38-foot yacht skippered by Quinn on Lake St Clair.

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.
