: Bird's Eye View

The Englishman's Home by Sir John Betjeman In this film. Sir John surveys house and garden through the centuries, from an unusual vantage point. His bird's-eye view is romantic, poetic and sometimes quite outspoken.
The idea of juxtaposing Betjeman ana a helicopter is bizarre, but it worked triumphantly. (OBSERVER) Producer EDWARD MIRZOEFF (R)

: In at the Deep End

Five films in which
Chris Serle and Paul Heiney take it in turns to plunge in at the deep end.
Fastnet Race Skipper
The closest Chris Serle has come to sailing is drinking other people's gin and tonic on other people's boats.
Now he approaches the Royal Ocean Racing Club to find out if he can skipper a yacht in Britain's premier off-shore race.
In 1979, 15 yachtsmen lost their lives when a devastating storm struck the Fastnet fleet. Before he can even consider leading a crew on the 1985 race, Chris must learn to sail from scratch, absorb a thorough knowledge of navigation, meteorology, safety at sea - and how to motivate the crew to win. After a tough summer of intensive training from sailing instructor Roger Justice , and advice from some of the world's most successful skippers including Chay Blyth , Clare Francis and Harold Cudmore , Chris and his crew aboard True Brit cross the Fastnet start line.

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.
