: Crimewatch UK

The programme where viewers across the country can help police solve serious crime. with Sue Cook and Nick Ross Last month in the Cleveland town of Hartlepool, a cash security van was attacked as it stopped at a housing estate sub-post office. Five masked men, armed with pickaxes, a shotgun and ammonia spray, got away with many thousand pounds in cash and stamps. Witnesses who tried to call the police found their phones were dead. The gang had cut lines to the whole estate. Five cars were used in the robbery, all of them stolen in the North.
One, a rare type of BMW, was taken in September. Where was it kept for those four months? A viewer who remembers seeing the car could lead police to the men they must catch.
Help solve these and other crimes - call Crimewatch UK on [number removed]any time from
9.30pm until midnight.

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.
