: Storm Alert - A 999 Special

October saw the highest rainfall for more than ten years in England and Wales. For this 999 special, cameras were on hand to record the effects of the deluge on ordinary people and the emergency services.
See today's choices.

Storm Alert
9.30pm BBC1

It seemed that every night in October, the news featured more and more footage of worse and worse flooding. Certainly October brought the highest rainfall some areas have had for years and resulted in rivers flowing at up to ten times their normal levels and serious flooding to England and Wales.
This 999 special captures some of the human dramas that the news cameras might have missed, recording the effects on ordinary people whose lives were suddenly turned upside down by the dramatic weather and the emergency services who came to their rescue. There's also a second chance to see other amazing stories of people caught out by the weather.

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.
