with Janet Ellis, Mark Curry, Caron Keating
Sight Saver Stop Press: The Sight Saver Appeal is producing unbelievable results - if the totaliser target is reached today, five mobile eye units will soon be in operation saving sight and preventing blindness in Malawi, Tanzania and Nigeria; and two medical motorbikes will be in action in The Gambia, taking ophthalmic assistants to remote country districts where urgent eye care is needed. Remember, just £1 can save one person's sight, so if your bring-and-buy sale is still to come, the appeal will make good use of the proceeds and provide even more badly-needed help.

On Trial
The students of the Empire Test Pilots' School are half-way through their demanding course.
They now have to display their new-found skills by first, in a single hour, test-flying a light aircraft and then spending the next 20 hours writing the definitive report.
One of the student syndicates discovers that presenting the findings of the test flight to an audience of super-critical tutors is much more difficult than flying.

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.
