Salman Rushdie is one of the most respected authors of our era. His novel Midnight's Children was awarded the Booker McConnell prize for fiction in 1981. His next novel Shame also topped the best-sellers list for many weeks.
In July 1986, Salman Rushdie was invited by Sandinista Association of Cultural
Workers to visit Nicaragua.
The trip inspired the novelist to write his first book in three years, The Jaguar Smile. He talks to Peter GUI about the book and his visit.

: Match of the Day Live

Watford v Everton
Introduced by Jimmy Hill with Bobby Charlton and Trevor Brooking
The final coverage of live
League football this season comes from Vicarage Road, and Watford's fine home form will demand that Everton be at their Sunday best in pursuit of their ninth
Championship success.
Keep the abacus handy, for this fixture has produced 19 goals in the last three seasons. Everton are not complaining at those results - a 4-4 draw followed by 5-4 and 2-0 wins. All of which leaves Watford still seeking their first measure of revenge for defeat in 1984's FA Cup Final. Home and away, five subsequent League meetings have all gone Everton's way.

Joe Gladwin , Kathy Staff in Edie and the Automobile
There is a feeling of tension in the town; people are very careful where they walk and certain hardened men folk are showing obvious signs of shock - Edie is learning to drive again. Compo and Clegg are justifiably alarmed when Seymour, a renowned non-driver, volunteers to take over the instruction. All he needs is a qualified driver to simply sit next to her....

: Heart of the Matter

with Helena Kennedy Because of the AIDS epidemic, homosexuals are now feeling the sharp edge of calls for a new morality.
There is increasing pressure for a change in the law which permits homosexual relationships in private.
Hostility and prejudice are now being shown in a way that has not been seen since the decriminalisation of homosexuality in 1967. This week, at the Heart of the Matter, Helena Kennedy asks what justification there is for interfering with other people's private behaviour to accommodate a swing in public attitudes.

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.
