Objects of Desire. How is our taste in furniture and interiors formed? Tom Vernon 's examination of the influence of Europe's interior designers ranges from Barcelona nightclubs to Danish lights to Milan furniture stores.

Avenue hostess must organise a swish dinner party. The guest list includes a former TV star on the skids, a tart-tongued authoress and a boorish Texan businessman with his floozie wife.
Beneath the veneer of sophistication and money lurk tales of laughter and tears in this remake of George Cukor 's 1933 film. Charles Durning also features in Mass Appeal tonight at 10.40pm.

: Everyman

Explorations of the I faith and beliefs of people in ordinary and extraordinary circumstances Livingforjason. Wendy
Hayhoe is convinced of the purpose of her son Jason's life, although, at 41/2 years old, he is dying. A perfectly normal, healthy baby until he was 8 months, Jason then began to suffer a series of fits. He was eventually diagnosed as having Alpers disease, a degenerative condition affecting the brain. Supported by the staff at a children's hospice in Cambridge, Wendy and her husband Martin are preparing to face the inevitable.
But this is not a film about dying. It is about the extraordinary strength, courage and unconditional love two parents give as they come to terms with their son's impending death.

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.
