Phillip Schofield presents the fifth of six documentaries from some of Europe's greatest cities. Prague. His visit to

Revolution and finds Stalin's statue replaced by a giant metronome and socialist lecture halls taken over by bingo. America's famed
Pinkerton Police have been drafted in to help patrol the city streets, and Schofield meets the only woman officer in Czechoslovakia; and he joins a family of Romany entertainers at a colourful gypsy festival. He visits an astronomers' summer camp; a unique telephone helpline; and the studios of brilliant animator JifiBarta, who brings objects such as mannequins to life. He samples therapeutic beer in the nearby spa town of Karlovy Vary, takes an eventful drive in the national car - the Skoda, and works off his frustrations by knocking a nail into his boss's head.

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.
