The people, the stories and the action behind the one commodity no one can do without - money.
The Money-Minder, our up-to-the-minute news feature on the Stock Market explores and explains the world of bulls, bears and boom-lets. The imaginary £1,000 invested by the Money-Minder last October may have risen 30%, but shares aren't always so obliging, as our weekly look at the investment world shows.

Two Worlds in Spoleto
A look back at summer and the 'Festival of Two Worlds' at Spoleto. With excerpts from Verdi's Requiem, Boris Godunov, and an American stage version of Alice in Wonderland, this film looks at the meeting of the arts and a town in Italy.

Old Father Death
Masks, skeletons, satire - the strange world of the Belgian James Ensor, 1860-1949, who in fact was a key influence on many of the great artists of the 20th century.

Paco Pena plays Flamenco
The brilliant 29-year-old guitarist, who's done as much as anyone to try to restore classical flamenco.

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.
