With more than 1,000 patents to his name Thomas Alva Edison was perhaps the most creative inventor in the history of mankind. Yet, as so often happens with 'textbook names' we know very little about him.
Edison was the incarnation of the All-American Dream, of the country boy who made good, who chewed tobacco, talked dirty, ridiculed scientific theory and in his time committed some truly remarkable blunders. In 70 years' active working life of often 15-20 hours a day he made invention a commercial proposition, changed the course of science, and made a decisive contribution to how we all live today.

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.
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.
