: Country File

The peace and quiet of the countryside is one of its main attractions in this age of hustle and bustle.
But that peace is regularly shattered in some parts of Britain by the RAF.
Ian Breach , who himself lived in a village plagued by low flying, questions whether country folk are expected to endure too much in the national interest.
Also Caroline Hall reports on the electronic cottage which could spell an end to commuting.

: Songs of Praise

from Hexham Abbey
On the first Sunday in Advent, when Christians prepare to welcome the light of Jesus, Songs of Praise comes from Hexham Abbey where the crypt dates from the time of St Wilfrid in the seventh century.
Sunday school children prepare christingles under the eye of local cookery teacher Vivien Drydon to carry in procession.
Roger Royle hears how
Alice Dickenson left Hexham before the war to spread the light of the gospel in China and got caught in the revolution.
He also meets Pamela Sims , whose work as a consultant obstetrician allows her to share regularly the miracle of the new-born baby's arrival.
0 come, 0 come (Veni Emmanuel), Hills of the north, rejoice (Little
Cornard), Lo, he comes (Hemsley),
Hark a herald voice (Merton). Let all mortal flesh keep silence (Picardy), Thou whose almighty word
(Moscow). 0 love that wilt not let me go (St Margaret), Sleepers wake (Wachet auf)

: Heart of the Matter

Beyond the Limit
In Israel, they say the army is the second most sacred institution after God. But today some Israeli soldiers are choosing to go to jail rather than serve in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. In the wake of this month's election,
Heart of the Matter examines the crisis of conscience raised by the Palestinian Intifada or uprising. Joan Bakewell talks to the 'refuseniks' whose refusal to fight reflects their belief that their country's position in the occupied territories is indefensible.

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.
