: The World About Us

Under London Expedition with Sir Ranulph Twisleton-Wykeham -Fiennes, explorer
Liz Fraser , actress
Douglas Botting , travel writer
Who would expect to find deep beneath their feet an ice-making machine, a telephone exchange, a waterfall, two frozen turbots, and a Prime Minister's bedroom?
This is the dark nether-world in which the Under London Expedition takes a light-hearted look at the strange, complex labyrinth of tunnels and sewers, railways and shelters, vaults, crypts and caves, which are as remote to the world above as the farthest reaches of Patagonia - and as full of surprises.
Written by DOUGLAS BOTTING Director COLIN LUKE
Producer BRIAN BRANSTON

: For the Nation: Two Miniatures

by Nicholas Hilliard and Isaac Oliver at the National Portrait Gallery
For the same sentimental reason that we carry around with us photos of loved ones, the wealthy Elizabethan - 400 years ago - might be wearing a small jewelled locket. Inside it, a tiny portrait painted in water colours. Two of these exquisite little pictures came up for auction earlier this year. Roy Strong bid over £60,000 of the tax-payers' money to acquire them for the National Portrait Gallery and, he believes, it was money well spent.

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.
