: Harry

Darlington's fearless newshounds stumble across the perfect tabloid shocker this week when
Harry, just out of prison, sees a man breaking down a door with an axe. But this turns out to be even more juicy than the average Mad Axeman story, for the door in question belongs to a "glamour" photographer who has been producing pornographic pictures of local girls.
Further investigations reveal a thriving business in pornography and prostitution being plied by local students desperate to supplement their grants. And one of them is the daughter of a town councillor who is a highly vocal campaigner against pornography.

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.

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