: The Last Laugh

A Tribute to Les Dawson
The untimely death of Les Dawson has robbed us of one of Britain's best-loved TV personalities - the glum, rubber-faced, northern stand-up comic who made a fine art out of the mother-in-law joke; the game-show host whose subversive wit raised
Blankety Blank to the realms of the surreal; the creator of the hilarious Cissie and Ada characters. In this special tribute friends and admirers look back over the loveable
"ugly mug's" brilliant career.

: Disabled Lives

Last of three films on the meaning of disability. Moved to Action
In April 1992, 3,000 disabled people from around the world descended on Vancouver, Canada, to attend the Independence 92 conference - the biggest gathering of its kind and a milestone in the growth of a global disability movement. So how did the city respond to such an influx of disabled visitors? And behind the rhetoric, what of Vancouver's own disabled residents denied access because of the fee?

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.
