Deep in the rainforest, a tiny mahogany seedling pushes up towards the light. It will become a forest giant, a centre of exuberant life. But, as we order our kitchen or pick up the corned beef at the supermarket, that tree's days may be numbered ...

: Further On Down the Road

An electrifying evening in the company of three legendary blues musicians.
Although they had spent 25 years on the road performing their individual styles of blues guitar, Roy Buchanan, Albert Collins and Lonnie Mack had never before appeared on stage together.
That all changed in December 1985 at Carnegie Hall, New York, when this influential trio appeared to perform their own standards such as Jack the Ripper, If Trouble Was Money and Satisfy Susie, before joining forces in a storming version of the blues classic Further On Down the Road.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
