: Heart of the Matter

For Better, For Worse with Joan Bakewell.
A Danish priest legally marries his homosexual partner. Progressive, or a betrayal of fundamental values? While most of Danish society has supported the new legislation for homosexual partnerships, discontent does not go away. Joan Bakewell talks to those people for whom the wedding has been the end of a long struggle for equal rights, and also to those who feel that Danish society is being corrupted.
Heart of the Matter travels to Copenhagen to witness the first mass wedding of homosexuals and takes a fresh look at what is meant by marriage.

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.
