Michael Buerk presents some more dramatic stories of real-life rescues, revealing extraordinary heroism and bravery. In an "enhanced documentary" form, they combine actual footage of the rescues with dramatic reconstructions by the emergency services, actors and some of the people involved.
In tonight's programme, when a lift jams between floors in an Edinburgh tower block, a young man panics and climbs onto the lift roof. What happens next leaves him hanging over a 100ft drop as firefighters begin one of their most daring rescues. And a look at how two navy divers set out to save 40 men, women and children from a sinking ship off the Devon coast, but end up having to be rescued themselves. Plus tips on how you might save a life, and video reporter Fiona Foster out on the frontline with the rescue services.

: Omnibus Special

Barcelona with Robert Hughes In this critical, tough and often idiosyncratic documentary,
Robert Hughes , art critic and cultural historian, explores the capital city of Catalonia.
Currently in the news as a city of sport, Barcelona has a long history of distinguished contribution to art, music and architecture.
Hughes visits the anarchic celebrations that accompany the annual celebration of the festival of the Merce; goes to designer Javier Mariscal 's architecturally outrageous nightclub, the Torre d'Avila; watches the lurid display of the transsexuals who openly ply their trade in the shadow of the football stadium; and samples the activity that pulses 24 hours a day in the Ramblas. And in the majestic modernist setting of Domenich Montener 's Palau de Musica he talks to Montserrat Caballe about her love of the city. Director Gerry Troyna Editor Andrew Snell

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.
