: Byline

A series of personal documentaries on the contemporary world. Embracing the Bear by the Rt Hon Enoch Powell. 'The Soviet Union has never represented a military threat.' As the world turns its attention towards the USSR's first experiments in democracy, do we really understand the nature of the Soviet Union?
Enoch Powell , one of Britain's best known and most controversial political figures, visits the Soviet
Union during the first days of the People's Congress, to explore the Soviet experience of war, Stalinism and the new thirst for openness.
Inside the chamber of the Congress, Powell observes: 'It is an extraordinary experience to be among people who take a positive pride in the fact they don't know where they're going.
But the Soviet Union remains our natural ally.'

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.
