Driver Behaviour
I Over 90 per cent of road accidents are caused by human error, for instance by falling asleep, and it's an error that kills around
4,000 people every year. This
Watchdog special investigates the behaviour that turns ordinary drivers into killers, and asks: "How safe is your driving?"
The programme has conducted the largest-ever survey of driving habits, and concludes that most of us are not as skilled as we think we are.
When picked at random, seven out of ten experienced drivers fail the driving test! Producer Simon Walton

: The Inspector Alleyn Mysteries

Patrick Malahide , currently appearing in BBC2' s Middlemarch, returns as Ngaio Marsh 's upper-crust 1940s detective in a special one-off film that follows on from last year's series. "He's extremely intelligent, very mercurial, very old-fashioned," says Malahide of Alleyn. "You would be foolish to make an enemy of him, even though he would never resort to bullying tactics and he'd be unfailingly polite."
Alleyn is busy investigating the discovery of a dead body in a drainage ditch outside the home of Percival Pyke Period (played by John Gielgud ) in the quiet backwater of Chalfont Green.

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.
