The Prophecies of Nostradamus
Michael Nostradamus - the prophet who foretold the death of Kennedy, the rise of Hitler, even the fall of the Shah of Iran ... or so his interpreters would have us believe.

Henry Lincoln looks behind the smoke screen of interpretation at the real
Michael Nostradamus who lived in the 16th century in the South of France, trained as a doctor at the university of Montpellier and whose prophecies were bestsellers in his own lifetime.

: Crimewatch File

Double Supergrass
Since Crimewatch UK began viewers have helped solve serious crimes in some remarkable ways. In
Crimewatch File, presented by Sue Cook and Nick Ross , detectives reveal for the first time the inside stories behind major investigations. In 1985 the flying squad was looking for a gang of armed robbers who were strapping remote-controlled explosive devices to their victims.
A 14-year-old saw
Crimewatch and gave police information they could scarcely believe. It led to eight months surveillance, threw up the names of some notorious London criminals and led to the arrest of the gang. The case made criminal history when one of the robbers, Donald Barrett , turned supergrass for the second time. The handling of a double supergrass posed new problems for the officers close to Barrett and to those in charge of the investigation. This documentary follows the case through to the day Barrett and his former accomplices were sentenced at the Old Bailey. Producer SAM ORGAN

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.
