: Only Time Would Tell

Harold Williamson Revisits Lynne Cowley - A Very Private Detective
Lynne Cowley was adopted as a baby, and for 27 years had no idea who she was - there was no way of knowing. Then the law changed. Secrecy surrounding adoption was lifted and she was able to dig into the past. Despite warnings about the risks of going back in time, she burrowed away in registers of births and marriages, telephone books, electoral rolls and parish records to track down her natural mother.

Corrupt businessmen, incompetent managers and obstinate shop stewards are all mercilessly and equally lampooned in this famous
Boulting Brothers' satire. Ian Carmichael is the hopelessly incompetent innocent who breaks the rules of the game and Peter Sellers excels as a pillar of short-sighted integrity.

: Songs of Praise

from the London Borough of Newham 'Do you sing tenor or bass?' the producer asked at the choir rehearsal. 'I sing awful!' came the reply. East End humour is alive and well in the dockland borough of Newham. So is Christianity - with the churches coming out from behind closed doors into the community.
Among the Christians
Roger Royle meets in the area are LINDA ST LOUIS who works at the Mayflower
Centre, and a Tamil family who have just formed their own church. For tonight's programme Christians from all over the borough gather in Rathbone Market in Canning Town to sing their songs of praise in their own style. ANNA WING ('Lou Beale ' of EastEnders) meets some of the stallholders and joins in the singing.

: Heart of the Matter

Once a Catholic ...
All is not well with the Pope's American congregation. The trouble is sex. In New York, a priest who admits to being homosexual, though he is true to his vows of celibacy, has just been expelled from the Jesuits after 38 years' service. The reason: he ministers to gay Roman
Catholics and denounces the Vatican's teaching on homosexuality. In West
Virginia, two plain-clothed, plain-speaking nuns are facing dismissal from their order. The reason: they publicly take a pro-choice position on abortion.
On the eve of the Pope's visit to America, Helena Kennedy asks whether the Catholic Church is sufficiently catholic to cope with dissent. Film editor MIKE ALOOF

The Hunt for Planet Ten
Is there a tenth planet? New evidence seems to indicate that there is in fact an extra member of the solar system, moving far beyond the paths of the most distant planets now known, Pluto and Neptune. Patrick Moore discusses the whole problem, and speculates as to what
Planet Ten may be like - if it really exists!

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.
