A programme for children at home.
In the story chair, Ruth Goring

: Outlook for Wednesday: Making Home Movies: 5: Nothing But The Truth

Seven programmes comprising a beginner's guide to cine photography.

The object of logical editing is to show the truth - but preferably not all of it. This may be done 'in the camera' - but is easier on the editing bench.

: Man Alive: Consenting Adults: 2: The Women

A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives.
Reporters, Angela Huth, Jeremy James, John Percival, Trevor Philpott, Desmond Wilcox

Lesbians: women who prefer to live their lives with other women, women who reject the company and love of men and reject the idea of children and family life. Lesbianism is not illegal. But for most of us it is unacceptable. There may be no need for parliamentary discussion about the behaviour of these women, but for women who love women, unqualified acceptance by our society still does not exist.


Director: Adam Clapham
Editor: Desmond Wilcox

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.
