: A Celebration for Pentecost

Each week people from more than 100 different nationalities meet for worship in Kensington Temple, one of London's fastest growing churches. "KT", as it's affectionately known, now has five lively Sunday services to accommodate its growing congregation. As Christians across the world observe
Pentecost - the coming of the Holy Spirit to the early church - members of "KT" invite you to join them as they celebrate, through music, dance and drama, the presence of the Spirit in their lives today. Preacher: the Rev Wynne Lewis.

: Survivors - a New View of Us

The Mahogany Connections
Your mahogany kitchen seems a long way from the jungles of Brazil, the greenhouse effect and Coca Cola, but they are connected - like hamburgers, British banks and cars. Deep in the rainforest, a tiny mahogany seedling pushes towards the light. It should become a forest giant, a centre of exuberant life, but when we order that kitchen or buy corned beef at the supermarket, we order that tree's destruction. Narrated by Anthony Smith. (Rpr)

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.
