There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a

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.

externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
