: Whicker's World

Living with Waltzing Matilda Alan Whicker talks to a cross-section of enterprising 'Poms' who have gone to live and work down under.
Beautiful people abound in Sydney, and more than a few exotic blooms are on display at Lady Primrose Potter 's Fancy Dress Ball, where Diana 'Bubbles' Fisher, society columnist and daughter-in-law of a defunct Archbishop of Canterbury, chronicles proceedings attired as Brunhild. Then there is the annual Sleaze Ball where 6,000 gays in this, the gayest of cities, pogo through the night to the laser lighting of Jeff Hardy who once decked the displays at Fortnum and Mason. But first Alan Whicker meets the man who migrated 12,000 miles from East Ham - to become a dustman - and the orphan abandoned in a Cumbrian workhouse 50 years ago, who is now an Australian Cabinet Minister.

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.
