Stevenson's Travels
The conclusion to the two-part documentary celebratingthe life and work of Robert Louis Stevenson covers the last 14 years - the writing of his first novel Treasure Island; the story behind Jekyll and Hyde; a winter in the Adirondack Mountains of New York
State which inspired The Master of Ballantrae; and his voyage in the Pacific where he was to die, on 3 December 1894, at the age of 44. The circumstances of his death are vividly recalled by an eye witness, his stepdaughter Belle Strong, on a tape recording discovered in the course of making the programme.
This much travelled man spent his final years a clan chieftain in Samoa, a Scottish exile witnessing native wars and who died before completing what remains, even unfinished, perhaps his greatest book, Weir of Hermiston.
Writers PD James, Candia McWilliam and Alasdair Gray areamongthose who discuss the extraordinary life of Robert Louis Stevenson.

: Attack on Terror

First of a two-part fact-based drama, starring Wayne Rogers

1964, Mississippi: a reign of terror and violence by the Ku Klux Klan results in the disappearance of three black civil rights workers who were working to encourage local protest against the segregation laws. When they subsequently turn up dead, the FBI is forced to respond, and so begins a campaign by the Bureau's agents to get to the bottom of a case which appears, at first glance, to be intractable. A campaign against fear in the heart of America.

The events depicted also inspired Alan Parker's movie Mississippi Burning. Part 2 is on Thursday at 1 1.25pm.

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.
