: Frontiers

Eight writers, with special reasons to care, journey along some of the most critical frontiers in the world.
2: Stranded in Time. The island of Cyprus is divided by a line drawn 16 years ago to separate warring
Greeks and Turks. Both sides are now stranded: Cypriots living ten metres apart cannot telephone each other. Districts where thousands of people once lived are deserted; memories of the killings are fresh and emotions run high. Christopher Hitchens travels on both sides, aghast at what he finds. One person he meets is equally surprised. Andrew Constantinides , with a broad London accent, stayed too long on holiday and found himself conscripted into the Greek National Guard. Now he faces the guns of Turkish Cypriots with whom, back in London, he might have been happy to go drinking. Producer Michael Waldman

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.
