: Chronicle

Faces of the Moon
On the heights of the Andes there lived before the Incas a shadowy people: headhunters, maize-growers, moon-worshippers. Their faces and moods are reflected in the pottery which has survived them in the dry Peruvian sand.
Written by Lucy Goodison.

Cave Cemetery of Niah
The Niah Caves in Borneo tell a story of human activity which spans 40,000 years. Men lived and died in these caves before the end of the Ice Ages, and today their strange rites of burial are still observed.
A film by Hugh Gibb.

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.
