: The Craftsmen: Bob Godfrey, film animator

"I just happen to like to make people laugh, and I think if I wasn't in film animation I'd probably be playing the pier."

Bob Godfrey is a craftsman in film who teaches animation to students at the Guildford College of Art. But draughtsmanship is not the only skill to be mastered - "you have to be a bit of a photographer, a mathematician, a psychologist, a remote-control exhibitionist, a storyteller, a comedian, an instructor." His drawings become trick films and cartoons. The latest of these, Henry 9 'til 5 has won several awards at film festivals all over the world.

: Look, Stranger: Treasure Hunter

John Webb, 32, is a professional treasure hunter, using a beat frequency detector whose 'note' changes when it passes over metal, Roman coins, silver paper, shrapnel and dustbin lids.
His first clues to hoards, lost treasure, highwayman's booty, come from old books. What drives him on is the big find - like Mildenhall and Sutton Hoo.

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.
