: Private Investigations

The series which gives members of the public a camcorder in order to pursue their own investigations into something that troubles them, makes them angry, or excites their curiosity.
This week: Sarah Brignall has spent a small fortune on anti-wrinkle creams over the last ten years. Now armed with her camcorder she's trying to penetrate deep into the advertising claims of the beauty industry to see if she has spent her money wisely. Farmer Martin Pitt has kept free-range hens on his farm in Wiltshire for years. He knows that they are contented and free but questions whether eggs sold in supermarkets under the label free-range are really the product of happy hens. Are free-range hens any healthier than battery and barn birds? Martin sends the eggs away to laboratories for chemical analysis and checks out first-hand the conditions hens really live in.

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.
