Big Bang in the Book World With the recent transatlantic takeovers and mergers, books are suddenly an international commodity, and London and New York are battling for supremacy in the global market. Media barons now collect publishing houses like books for a library. Shirley Conran Paul Theroux
George Weidenfeld
Andre Deutsch , P. D. James Paul Hamlyn , Peter Mayer and others comment on what this means for readers and writers.
For one author whose new novel is published this week it means serious money and hard travel. Douglas Adams 's previous success was The
Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy. His agent Ed Victor sold the book and its sequel for 2,275,000 dollars in the US, and for £500,000 in Britain. Today Adams flies to New
York to continue the modern writer's pilgrimage, the promotional tour.

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.
