Documentaries uncovering human stories from the world of science, medicine and technology. Tokyo Earthquake. Seventy years ago, the city of Tokyo was hit by an earthquake. It destroyed half a million buildings, provoked national economic collapse and left
140,000 people dead or dying. Another earthquake of the same size could strike at any time. When it does it will obliterate one third of the earth's richest city and plunge the entire world into unprecedented economic crisis. QED shows, in graphic and disturbing detail, the effects the earthquake will have on 14 million people who live in Tokyo and on the fabric of the modern city; it also spells out the impact it will have on life in the rest of the world.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
