Charlene feels the whole world is against her and has only one person to turn to.

: All Well and Good

Can two baked-bean tins and an ironing board change your life?
Is cuddling good for you? Christopher Lillicrap and Suzanne Dando attempt to find the answers to these questions in the first of a new series of programmes that take a humorous and sideways look at the 'wellness' game. Before a live (hopefully!) audience, Joan Oliphant-Fraser , otherwise known as 'the Slender Gourmet' about her champagne diet, and special guest, comedian Don Maclean , answers questions about his snake phobia.
Home work-outs, takeaways, massage sandals and would you believe, a pig are also featured....

: Stephen Hendry Doing the Business

I hope I'm on the end of the microphone when Stephen wins the World Championship, but it's my bet hell be a millionaire first.
TED LOWE
This film, produced over a six-month period, gives an intriguing insight into how snooker's brightest prospect copes with the pressures of 'doing the business' in a big-money sport. Already this season Stephen has won an incredible five competitions, and at the age of 18 is the youngest winner of a major ranking tournament.
For the teenage prodigy who has everything, the challenge is to achieve the twin aims of fulfilling his potential and of projecting a personality that will attract prestige sponsors. The programme reflects all the humour and tensions behind the scenes as the brilliant young Scot bids to convert promise into achievement.
Just pure brilliance - I enjoy his game all the time

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.
