: Making Sense

... of the Church with Donald Reeves. 'There is something profoundly uninteresting and very boring about church and church services.'
Donald Reeves believes that institutional religion, with its worship and its rituals, fails to engage people's interest or meet their deepest needs. 'We have to find the occasions where we can let the pain out.... away with all this neutrality we have in our church services.'

: Everyman

Pity the Nation:
Charles Glass's Lebanon On 17 June 1987, the American journalist Charles Glass was kidnapped by Shi'ite gunmen in Beirut. After 62 days he escaped, closing the book on an association with a country and a people lasting 15 years. He cannot go back. But in this film he offers a personal impression of the most memorable moments in those years. He takes us behind the news to the realities of violence, the endurance of the people, the best and worst of the place. He provides a picture of a world whose slow disintegration he witnessed until finally he became its victim.
One of the best and most heart-rending documentaries I've ever seen.

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.
