: Jim'II Fix It

After 20 years of making dreams come true for people, Jimmy Savile has announced he is quitting Jim 'II Fix It. "There is no logic to what I am doing," he has said. "We have enough ideas for an entire new series ... and the ratings are rock solid. But I work by instinct and I just feel that the time is right. I made the same decision after 20 years on Top of the Pops."
So this is the first of what will be the very last series. Among the highlights are two sisters who want to present their own holiday programme, a 10-year-old who races across London on his bike but under ground, a frustrated tap dancer and a boy with a slimy wish to fulfil.
But Jimmy Savile won't be disappearing from our screens for good when this series ends. He is currently working on the format for a new show.

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.
