Before Your Time
A light-hearted look at the origins of Kenny Everett from 'Big Bang' to birth.
Cosmic space-time controller John Westbrook gets a red alert when Kenny tries to grow a human being in his garden tub.
John finds our experimenter is no threat to creation, so he transports him around the galaxy through various dimensions, accuses him of being Brigitte Bardot 's husband, throws him out of a balloon and whisks him back to the beginning of time - all to show how a human being really is made.

International Football from Madrid
Highlights of England's important friendly against Spain in the Bernabeu Stadium. Barcelona manager TERRY VENABLES joins JOHN MOTSON in the commentary box for the first meeting between the two sides since a 0-0 draw on the same ground put England out of the 1982 World Cup.
It's a busy night for football with WALES and NORTHERN IRELAND also in action, and SCOTLAND facing a vital
European Championship match against the REPUBLIC OF IRELAND at Hampden Park.
Lloyd Honeyghan
Britain's world welterweight champion, Lloyd Honeyghan, enjoys surprises. His flamboyant lifestyle outside the ring has already raised eyebrows, and last September he raised a few more by demolishing Don Curry in Las Vegas. On Sunday,
Honeyghan defends his title for the first time, and tonight he talks to Harry Carpenter about his career, and assesses his Wembley opponent, the six-foot tall American southpaw JOHNNY BUMPHUS. Television presentation: Football TVE, Spain

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.
