The Glass Animal Man Bill Axcell can slice a windowpane, melt it in a flame and twirl it into a dragon, a daffodil or a carousel. As a child he was hopelessly clumsy; in the navy he was constantly seasick, and he still wreaks havoc every time he uses a hammer. Glass, to his amazement, works for him, and in his hands becomes a thing of magic. Executive producer JENNIFER JEREMY (R)

Do religious programmes fail to reflect the full range of religious experience and belief? How should broadcasters respond to the imminent challenge of US-style 'televangelism' on satellite and cable?
Just some of the issues viewers will be raising following a film made with Elaine Storkey. Assistant producer

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.
