Independent production companies are now responsible for 25 per cent of British TV output, but their names are largely unrecognised by the viewing public. This awards ceremony should set the record straight.
"Independent companies have to be sharp and inventive, says presenter Robert Kilroy-Silk , himself an independent producer. "If you can't come up with good ideas at competitive price, you go to the wall.
Anneka Rice is the co-host, and amongthe presentations is a special Radio Times readers award, decided byaphonevote.

The birth of a child can rock the most stable of marriages. So it's not surprising that the arrival of Alice has complicated Frank and Tessa's already troubled relationship. In Cards on the Table, the last ever episode of the romantic drama series,

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.
