A review of the sciences.
Introduced by Christopher Chataway.

Man of Science
H. G. Wells is best known as a writer of science romances and a man who, with remarkable accuracy, predicted future technological developments from the tank to space-shots. Behind the writer lay the shadow of the scientist he nearly became. Tonight's programme looks at the other side of this complex figure.

'Nature' Tomorrow
An interview with John Maddox, the new editor of one of the world's most influential scientific journals, Nature, in which he discusses his ideas for bringing up-to-date the magazine's coverage of scientific events.

Tonight in Person: William Clauson
At 9.40 Entertaining you tonight is a red-haired, Swedish-born, American-educated singer who is accompanied by a Latin-American group called Los Guaramex. William Clauson went to school in California and there became familiar with Mexican popular music. He and his group now have a world-wide reputation for playing Latin-American music, but Clauson also sings authentic Australian songs, children's songs, and sea shanties. Los Guaramex comprise Pepito Villa (melody guitar) who comes from Mexico, Ronal Cerutti (rhythm guitar) from Argentina, and Sergio Cuevas (Paraguayan harp) who, not surprisingly, is from Paraguay.

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.
