More from the investigative science series.
When to Change Faces. In her infancy, 16-year-old Laura had an operation to correct her cleft palate. Now, she has a misshapen face. To test whether early surgery was the cause of such growth problems, Michael Mars of Great Ormond
Street Children's Hospital visited Sri Lanka in 1984 to examine untreated adults. He discovered that, although they had normal growth, they suffered almost unintelligible speech. The nature and timing of the surgery need to be established to minimise both these problems, and Mars has since returned to Sri Lanka with a surgical team of volunteers to search for a compromise.

Introduced by Desmond . Lynam Football England v France
From Wembley Stadium. An intriguing match is in prospect as the two teams have been drawn together in the European Championships.
Tonight they meet for a dress rehearsal, but whether or not Graham Taylor and his French counterpart, Michel Platini , show their full tactical hands, the match is bound to be significant. The French, European Championship favourites who are unbeaten in 19 games, will be confident, while England have still suffered only one defeat during Graham Taylor 's reign.
Scotland v Northern Ireland
From Hampden Park.
Andy Roxburgh 's players start their build-up for a tough Swedish campaign in their first
European Championship appearance with a home match against a re-emerging Northern Ireland team.
Commentary by John Motson and Tony Gubba , with studio analysis by Jimmy Hill and Terry Venables.
Olympic Winter Games Featuring the original programme in the women's figure skating championship. The quarter-finals of the ice hockey tournament are completed, and there's a look back at the women's giant slalom and a look forward to tomorrow's men's short-track speed-skating 1,000m final - with Britain's Wilf O'Reilly hopefully bidding for gold. Plus news and results.

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.
