If so it might be just the beginning of your problems. Sankha Guha reports on the phenomenon of repeat burglaries.
Also, war on the riverbank. Mark Easton speaks to the small and extreme band of angling saboteurs. They claim fishing is cruel and resort to direct action to disrupt fishing competitions.

It is six months since
Frank Bruno 's last world-title boxing challenge ended with defeat by Lennox Lewis for the WBC heavyweight championship. His professional record now stands at 36 wins and four losses (to James "Bonecrusher" Smith, Tim Witherspoon and Mike Tyson prior to Lewis).
At 32 he embarks on his latest comeback with a non-title bout against the 36-year-old
American Jesse Ferguson , live from Birmingham's NEC.
Ferguson's best recent result was a victory over former champion Ray Mercer in a modest career record of 20 wins in 31 fights. The much loved
Bruno must win tonight if he is to extend his career in the ring.

: The Underworld

In the early 60s robbery was relatively easy. Security in banks, by today's standards, was almost non-existent, and a shot fired at the ceiling would stand a good chance of shocking most cashiers into submission. Even the Great
Train Robbers did not feel it necessary to take guns with them and, as Buster Edwards and Tommy Wisbey recall, they were totally unprepared for the long sentences they received despite their lack of firearms. These sentences, though, did little to deter fellow robbers from using guns and the number of bank raids increased greatly.

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.
