: Times Remembered

They have treasured memories of other times -firm views about present times.
In the race for today few of us spare enough time to listen - even to learn-from people who also know about yesterday, as they talk to the Man Alive reporters

: What Sort of World Do We Want?: 4: Spaceship Earth

The last in a series of films examining the problems and possibilities of our futures.

Most of us - rich and poor alike - believe that increasing affluence is our birthright. We are told to work harder, produce more, to enjoy an ever better standard of living. But people are already finding that increased material wealth often means a decline in the quality of life.

Soon we will have to decide whether increased economic gain is worth the sacrifices we have to pay for it. Indeed some scientists say that we must moderate our demands on nature to survive at all. But what are the demands made by ordinary British families? Dr Donald Gould talks to four such families about their day-to-day needs and their hopes and fears for the future.

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.
