I'm a Kind of Mechanised Tramp
Bill Houston is the kind of cyclist who would abhor the Tour de France almost as much as he abhors the motor car - he prefers exploring back roads and goat tracks. When he came out of the army in 1946 he vowed that no one was going to order him about for 20 years. In
1972 he was still living for the bicycle. That is 25 years, 34 countries and 400,000 miles later.

: The Journey

Last week, BBC1 showed again a powerful documentary made last year - Fourteen Days in May. It depicted the final two weeks in the life of Edward Johnson, a young black man on death row in Mississippi. Johnson was convicted of killing a white town marshal. He had always strongly proclaimed his innocence.
This April, his lawyer Clive Stafford Smith returned to Mississippi in a bid to discover the truth and clear his client's name. Though it proved a difficult task, he eventually found many people who were prepared to name, on film, the man they claim to be the true killer.
Stafford Smith then learned where the alleged murderer lived. His confrontation with this man provides a remarkable climax to his extraordinary journey.

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.
