A magical mystery tour of our own flesh and blood with Dr Graeme Garden
Dr Alan Maryon Davis Dr Gillian Rice and an audience of intrepid volunteers. Ouch!
What's your idea of the perfect torture? A razor sharp needle driven through your cheek? A dentist's drill without any anaesthetic? Or perhaps 25 years of chronic back pain?
Remarkably, all three could be very painful or virtually painless - depending on your state of mind. With the help of a fakir, a hypnotising dentist, a couple of first-division football players and a family whose children can't feel pain, Bodymatters will reveal all.

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.
