: Couples

'I suppose during the whole of our courtship we had one conversation about politics in which 1 grilled Gill as to what her basic attitudes were - and she passed with flying colours.' Bryan Gould , mp, dubbed 'the man most likely to succeed Neil Kinnock ', tells Dilys Morgan how he picked his bride, and Gill Gould in turn recalls her first impressions of the high-flying young diplomat. They talk about their life together, Bryan's extraordinary career and Gill's steadfast support for him through good times and less good ones.

: Black and White

A series of five programmes about the realities of racial discrimination.
2: Sorry Dear, It's Gone In their second week in Bristol, Tim Marshall and Geoff Small are now looking for flats. There are plenty of places advertised in the local paper - but how many are open to both black and white? Geoff is told a flat has gone; ten minutes later, Tim is told it's still open. In between the flat-hunting, there's time for a little rest and recreation at St Paul's carnival - a chance for
Bristolians, black and white, to enjoy two days of eating, drinking and music.

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.
