Papa Wojtyla
First in a three-part series On 16 October 1978, Karol Wojtyla , the Cardinal
Archbishop of Krakow in Poland, was elected to the papacy. He was the youngest pope in a century and the first non-Italian in 450 years. He chose the name John Paul n.
At the time, outside Poland, little or nothing was known about a man who has since become one of the best known popes in history.
Papa Wojtyla goes behind the public face of the papacy to discover the human being. You Could Steal Horses with Wojtyla ...
The behind-the-scenes story of how Wojtyla came to be elected, while at the same time tracing his early life and career. Wojtyla himself talks to Richard Denton about his late vocation and his own response to his election. Photography REX MAIDMENT Sound RON BROWN

: O'Donnell Investigates....Age

Fit for Life
Dr Michael O'Donnell investigates the ageing process, attempting to get at the truth behind our preconceptions of a slow but inevitable decline. There seems to be no reason why most of us shouldn't lead an active life well into our 90s, providing of course, that we choose the right parents - and put in a lifetime's preparation.

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.
