: Trooping the Colour

One of Britain's most popular and spectacular occasions, this celebration of the monarch's official birthday has been held since the mid-1700s. Tens of thousands of people attend the actual event and millions more watch on television.
This morning, 17 cameras will capture all the pomp and ceremony as the Second Battalion Grenadier Guards, formed in 1656, troop their Queen's Colour for the last time before going into" suspended animation" as a result of Government defence cuts. Julian Tutt describes the scene as Her Majesty the Queen - accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Kent and the Grand Duke of Luxembourg - takes the salute.
But it is not simply a colourful pageant. Many people do not realise that the guardsmen who take part in today's ceremony are all trained soldiers and many have been on tours of duty in hot spots such as Bosnia and Northern Ireland.

: Hit the Road

In the first series of Noel's House Party, some celebrity guests were set up for a Gotcha in which they believed they were taking part in an energetic game show. Setting off against two other teams they battled away for a couple of hours before returning to find their competitors idly drinkingtea.
But the whole fiasco had entertained them so much that the idea for a new series was born. Team captains Jonathan Coleman , Annabel Giles and John Leslie lead their members in a manic three-stage race, armed with a car, a map, a cellphone and £30 cash.
Tonight's first programme features Kriss Akabusi , Gary Davies , Sandra Dickinson , Liz Kershaw , Eric Knowles , Linda Lusardi and, as in every programme, three unsuspecting members of the public who have been set up by friends. Producer Guy Freeman

: Fair Game

With the World Cup looming, this drama is about two men who share a passion for football and, less happily, for the same woman.
1970: cheesecloth and flares are all the rage, the World Cup is on TV, and Harold Wilson is set to lose the General Election.
Marco, a wealthy young Italian, has come to England to discover his true identity. Carl, a student on vacation, is torn between watching the football on his parents' new colour television, canvassing for the Labour Party or going on a walking holiday with his girlfriend Ellie.
Their paths cross in Preston Library where Ellie hears Marco's story and decides to help him in his quest. To a soundtrack of songs by the Kinks, Mungo Jerry and the Beatles, Fair Game follows this unlikely trio through the trials of love, lust and loss as they undertake their epic journey across the Pennines.

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.

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.
