This week: THE BIG DIG
Two hundred people — women of seventy, boys of seventeen — spread over two measured acres of sandy beach and digging like mad through a hot summer's day. From time to time they had to be forced to rest, because their muscles, old and young, were driven by the hope that under the next shovelful of sand there might be a silver Maserati. or an E-type Jaguar, a Rover 2000. or a silver Cadillac, an ocean-going cabin cruiser, or a treasure chest containing £1,000. or any one of ten silver Mini-Coopers. Tonight Man Alive tells the story of the greatest treasure hunt ever launched in the name of commerce. It cost £150,000, and they called it ' The Big Dig.'

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.
