: A Fatal Inversion

When this three-part psychological thriller was first televised in 1992, author Ruth Rendell (who wrote it under the pseudonym Barbara Vine) told Radio Times she" shivered once or twice at the way the actors became the people who had tumbled out of my imagination, and sometimes uncannily more so...." Now we all have another chance to enjoy her mystery story about five students who share a terrible secret and vow they will never see each other again. But the discovery of the bodies of a woman and child in the grounds of a country mansion leads to the unravelling of a tragedy that happened 12 years previously.

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.

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.
