How does a bloodhound track a scent? Can monkeys live as one of the family? And how will Hopline put a new bound into spring?
Each week Desmond and Sarah explore the relationship between people and the animals in their lives. Today, at Kenilworth near

Sarah finds out how ponies inspired Thelwell and butterflies helped Churchill in the darkest days of the war. And she discovers a new breed of cat bom, by accident, when 'love laughed at locksmiths'. Researchers

: Metro-land

The first of three favourite films by Sir John Betjeman Tonight he celebrates suburbia in a trip along the Metropolitan Railway.
'Live in Metro-land' was the slogan. It meant buying a new house in the desirable residential suburbs that sprang up alongside the Met. John Betjeman finds homes of sin and mystery in St John 's Wood, a nature trail in Neasden, and London's answer to the Eiffel Tower in Wembley; a ladies' luncheon club in Harrow, and revels in Croxley Green. An instant classic (OBSERVER)

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.
