: The Family of Man: Teenagers

Must teenagers always quarrel with their parents? Do we do any harm by keeping them at school and prolonging their adolescence?

Are young people in this country more or less promiscuous than those elsewhere.

: Yesterday's Witness: The Great Scuttle

On Midsummer Day 1919 one of the most extraordinary episodes in the history of the sea took place in Scapa Flow, the famous anchorage in the Orkney Islands. Seventy-four ships of the German High Seas Fleet, at that time the world's second greatest navy, scuttled themselves in a calculated act of defiance.
Tonight's film sees this unique event through the eyes of three people who watched it happen, and one man who actively helped it to happen:
Mrs Rosetta Groundwater, William Waterson, Captain R. C. V. Ross, Vizeadmiral Friedrich Ruge

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
