Free Fall Record Breaker!
A tribute to Janet, who created a UK free fall parachuting record, and her trainers, the RAF Falcons. It was four years ago that Janet, a complete novice, was accepted for training by the world's best free fall team.
Undaunted by setbacks, that included a broken pelvis, Janet persevered to become the first female in Britain to have achieved a 90-second fall through the skies before pulling her ripcord!

A tough year for Britain, with violence and hardship for many finally killing off the 60s dream.

The Arab/Israeli war results in oil shortages and huge price increases in the West. This, combined with a work to rule by miners and power workers, results in 'The Three-Day Week'.

Fair Play for Britain Blacks For years now it's been illegal to refuse someone a job just because they're black. Yet, says the Policy Studies
Institute, at least a third of employers do just that: 'The brutal fact is that, despite the law, direct discrimination persists as an additional and powerful impediment to any economic progress by blacks.' While black people are denied a fair share of jobs, their resentment and frustration will grow. What are the great institutions in the land like the Civil Service and the Army doing to see that
British fair play extends to black Britons?

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.
