: EastEnders

The scriptwriters have had it in for Frank Butcher over the past year. His wife has been in prison for killing a girl while drink-driving, he has found his runaway daughter pregnant, his youngest daughter has been bullied at school and he has had to close his cab company after a rival business threatened his wife.
So when money became a decidedly touchy subject too, Frank resorted to an insurance fiddle, calling in the services of Phil Mitchell to torch his business.
But Frank has not been altogether honest with his family about the state of his accounts, so when a loss adjuster from the insurance company comes to check the books, poor old Pat does her best to help them in their enquiries. Frank has only one option left: he goes out for a long walk.

: The Wild West

Desert Shores of Cortez
The second of three films penetrating the _ truly wild places of North America visits the arid
Californian peninsula of Baja, a finger of land pointing down the west coast of Mexico, almost enclosing the fertile Sea of Cortez.
The sea is home to a myriad species, from the microscopic to huge manta rays. On its islands nest such exotic birds as the blue-footed boobies, while sea-lions rest between fishingtrips.
On the peninsula itself, kangaroo rats emerge at night to hunt for food, while they in turn are the prey of speckled rattlesnakes and over 60 species of scorpion. And amid the cactus forests are to be found Costa's hummingbirds and cactus mice.

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.
