Presented by Mike Smith with Penny Bustin, Paul Coia, Rob Curling, Malcolm McKeag

All year round, 24 hours a day, British Rail is part of the nation's life blood. It is used, abused, tolerated, criticised, appreciated and even sometimes praised by all of us at some time or other.

With a turnover exceeding £2,000 million a year, and more than 130,000 staff, it is one of the country's major industries. Railwatch is live from York, historic railway city and headquarters of BR's Eastern Region, the midpoint of the prestigious East Coast main line that links London with the north of England and Edinburgh. Every day this week, the programme goes behind the scenes to find out by whom and how the network is run.

Inside the Ayatollah's Iran
Few nations in recent history have endured the turmoil of Iran. Islamic Revolution has been followed by Holy War which has left an estimated million dead. Ruled by an Islamic government, where the aged

In an exclusive report,
David Lomax is in Tehran for the tenth anniversary celebrations and travels to the devastated war zone where an uneasy ceasefire still holds.

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.
