: Private Investigations

When the pilot of this new style of consumer series was broadcast in January this year, it was reviewed enthusiastically by The Times, who said itwas "people power at the cutting edge ... and entertaining with it".
Private Investigations draws on the style of the Bafta award-winning Video Diaries, giving ordinary people a camcorder so that they can make a film about something that makes them angry or just plain curious. And some of the campaigns in the pilot programme scored notable results, including questions in the House of Commons about a company executive's alleged clash of interests and a policy review by one local council on dog muck in its parks.
Each programme comprises four films. Items in the first include a report by two women who live in a block of flats with no bathrooms as they track down the person responsible to try to get proper washing facilities installed, and a man who tries to overcome his fear of flying.

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.
