: The World About Us: Sounds of Silence

In the heart of Dartmoor there are places where the silence seems to have been accumulating and deepening for centuries; yet in reality, the peacefulness is made up of many small sounds that blend together.
Lawrence Shove is a professional recordist who is making a sound-picture of the Moor.

: Tutankhamun's Egypt

The Land Egypt owes its existence to the Nile. As it flows north towards the Mediterranean sea, the river carries with it the fertilising silts and mud that make possible the lush cultivation along its banks. Beyond tnis narrow strip, the barren desert reaches east and west.
All the striking achievements of the Ancient Egyptians were based upon the farming of their narrow zone of fertile land. Even the Pharaoh Tutankhamun took with him into his tomb some little images of himself to labour for him at his agricultural tasks in the afterlife, as Cyril Aldred shows when he introduces tonight's programme from the Exhibition at the British Museum.

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.
