: British Sign Language

A Beginner's Guide
That signers use their hands when signing is obvious, but the expression on a signer's face carries around 60 per cent of the meaning of what is signed, and facial expression can change the meaning of signs on the hands. Clive tells a story that shows how important this is in BSL. Presented by Lorna Allsop with Clive Mason

A Portrait of the Earth
A series of 12 programmes by David Attenborough
1: The Building of the Earth Close to the summits of the world's greatest mountains, the Himalayas, are the remains of sea creatures.
How did they get there? To unravel this mystery David Attenborough examines the colossal forces that shape the Earth's surface and the ways in which animals and plants adapt to the changing conditions.
His exploration starts in the deepest gorge in the world where a vertical domain stretches from tropical forest to the snow line. From fire fountains in Iceland he travels to Krakatoa, a site of volcanic devastation where wildlife is now returning. Producer NED KELLY BBC Bristol (R)

Christians in an Atheist
World
For much of the past 70 years Christians in the Soviet
Union have practised their religion in the face of great hostility. During Stalin's time many priests and believers were imprisoned, victimised and murdered. And under Khrushchev thousands of churches were closed.
Today things are changing. Mr Gorbachev 's second revolution - his perestroika - is beginning to reach the Church. Some dissident priests and believers have been allowed out of prison; the supporters of religion are being given a voice in the normally atheist Soviet media; and there is even talk of the state returning some of the powers it removed from the Church after the revolution. But how far will glasnost go?
As the Church celebrates the millennium of Christianity in Russia Everyman has been to the Soviet Union to find out what it's like to be a Christian in an atheist world.

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.
