: Sylvania Waters

An ordinary Australian family feature in this
12-part fly-on-the-wall documentary that looks at the lives of some real-life Neighbours. Filmed in a well-off suburb of Sydney, it focuses on the Baker-Donaher family as they take on the world - and each other. The series became a national talking point when it was shown in Australia last year, criticised by some for its portrayal of Australians as crass, materialistic and bigoted, and praised by others for its social insight.
Producer Paul Watson , who made the acclaimed 1970s series The Family, says: "We have pulled out the authentic dramas and particular stories that make the family unique, but with which we can all identify. It is a living soap opera." Directors Brian Hill and Kate Woods

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.
