: The New Adventures of Superman

Lois Lane is an ambitious journalist with a romantic streak and Clark Kent's a regular guy who, every once in a while, flies through the air with his underpants outside his tights.
This retelling of the Superman story focuses on the relationship between them, a two-person love triangle that hinges on the scarcely credible premise that Lois fails to recognise Superman as her colleague because he's taken off his glasses.
In this pilot episode for a series that begins next week, Clark and Lois uncover a plot by reclusive billionaire Lex Luthor to hijack a space station.

: That's Life!

There are 65,000 fires in the home every year, and over 11,000 people are injured. That's 30 people every day. And there are three times as many home fires as 30 years ago -even allowing for an increase in the number of homes, the number has risen. Why? In a special report to mark the beginning of its 21st series, That's Life! examines the causes of fire in the home and offers advice on devising an escape plan.

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.
