: Man Alive

How Does Your Garden Grow?
Covent Garden market is moving out leaving nine acres of fiercely congested London quiet-for the first time in several centuries.
The departure of the market has opened the way for the planners and property developers eager to ' redevelop ' not only the market itself but 90 acres of Covent Garden. Sunken motorways, an international conference centre, luxury hotels, expensive offices, tall apartment blocks. The benefits, many would reasonably argue, of 20th century development. It has been the same with the Barbican; the Elephant and Castle; in central Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester; Exeter and Plymouth. It brings a new style to our city centres and, indisputably, profit to potential developers. But at what cost to ' 'villages' like Covent Garden and the people who live in them? The planners seem confident and promise responsible behaviour. Jim Doug Ias Henry and a Man Alive team have been listening to the planners and the people because what is happening in Covent Garden is important for all of us. Director TERENCE O'REILLY

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.
