: David Dimbleby's Review of 1988

1988: the year the world became a safer place.
The year of Gorbachev and Reagan, and the first steps to lasting peace. But also the year Eddie the Eagle triumphed at the Olympic
Games, Ian Botham escorted a herd of elephants over the Alps, and two whales, bored of being watched by the world's press, escaped from under the ice to the open sea. As the year ends, David Dimbleby looks back at events that are already memories: some trivial, some funny, some sad, and some, for once, quite encouraging. Picture editors

Tonight starring Cary Grant Jean Arthur

Cary Grant stars as the tough airline captain in this gripping story of love and adventure.
The setting is the banana port of Barranca, a remote outpost in South America where a group of fliers battle to get the mail through on a regular schedule, despite near impossible flying conditions.
Howard Hawks's study of men of action under stress is packed with excitement, high drama, romance, wisecracks and brilliantly staged flying sequences.

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.
