Viscount Hailsham, Q.C. Lord President of the Council and Minister for Science with John Freeman Editor, New Statesman.

Sing a song of particles infinitely small, Tissue-cultured specimens from off your stomach wall, Endocrine secretions from the ductless gland, Amino-nuclear acid chains, dancing hand-in-hand. Daily Herald
I regard myself as a midwife to the scientists. Daily Telegraph
I get hay fever for about six weeks every summer. I've taken lots of stuff for it. Drugs galore. But I still get it. Swimming in the sea is the only thing that appears to clear it up. Daily Mail
Any return to the religion of my fathers was slow and undramatic. No sudden light blinded me on the road to Damascus. No voice from Heaven reproved me for my infidelity. Sunday Express
We are here to promote not ourselves, not material goods, but a civilisation - a civilisation that could be destroyed now in a few days, but which has taken seven thousand years to build. We did not build it, but we are its heirs. It is our duty to pass it on, to extend its spiritual frontiers. The Guardian
I personally believe that hereditary titles, other than for the Royal Family, are an obsolete institution at the present day. News of the World

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
