: The Seaside Trains

The Pretty Route to Weston The Weston, Clevedon and Portishead Light Railway has been described as one of Britain's most unusual lines. It even advertised
'Blackberry Picking Specials' and spent most of its working life in the hands of the official receiver.
Managed by the legendary Colonel Stephens, the line had a genius for muddling through, but closed soon after the outbreak of the Second World War.
Gwyn Richards recalls the line's hey-day with the help of former passengers, staff and an '0' gauge model.

: An Ocean Apart

The final part of David Dimbleby 's series about Britain and America.
7: Turning up the Volume
This programme brings the relationship up to the Thatcher/Reagan era.
In April 1982, the Falklands Task Force needed vital information about the performance of the Argentinian submarines. The Americans had the answers, but publicly were neutral.
Lord Lewin, Chief of Defence Staff rang his opposite number in the Pentagon. 'Can you help?'
Within hours, a top secret document arrived on his desk in London containing the information he needed. The relationship under Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan was based on a shared belief in a strong defence. But, David Dimbleby asks, what happens next if America thinks the Soviet threat is receding.

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.
