: Chronicle

A monthly programme about archaeology and history with Magnus Magnusson.

The Other Conquest
At about the same time as their attack on England the Normans invaded Sicily. Tonight John Julius Norwich tells the remarkable story of their hard-fought victory over that rugged island defended by a fierce Saracen enemy. The Normans set up a great dynasty which has left dazzling achievements in marble and gold.

The City That Vanished
The ancient Greek city of Sybarlj even to its contemporaries was synonymous with luxury and high living, but the actual city itself has disappeared almost without trace. Now there is fresh hope of finding it with the help of a new electronic instrument, developed in England the proton magnetometer.

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.
