: Country File

Second of a two-part report. Swords into Ploughshares
As the food queues in Russia grow ever longer, the failure of the Soviet Union to feed itself threatens to be the downfall of President
Gorbachev whom the people blame personally for the country's ills. He desperately needs to put more and better food in the shops in order to quell strikes and ethnic unrest. But as Ian Breach reports, the farmworkers he must rely on are so alienated and apathetic that his chances of success are slim.
Plus the weather for the countryside at 12.55pm with Michael Fish.

: Everyman

The People Trade
Franklin lives in a children's home in Germany. His parents live in Sri Lanka. He is just one of the thousands of child refugees who have been sent, alone and bewildered, to claim asylum in Europe. Everyman explores the fear that makes parents send their children thousands of miles away from home with little hope of seeing them again. It exposes the world of forgers and smugglers that they are forced to enter in order to get their children out of danger, and examines the prospects for the children as they adjust to their new life in Europe.

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.
