Not all craftsmen are old men. ADRIAN HODGSON is 33 and specialises in the removal and restoration of timber-framed houses.
Whether he's carving an elaborate chair leg or restoring a half-timbered church, he has the same sensitive approach as craftsmen of another age.

: One Pair of Eyes

A series of highly personal films
If you've got a pair of eyes, use them, says Spike Milligan
SPIKE MILLIGAN is a very funny serious man and a very serious funny man. For him life's problem is to tiptoe through the chaos he sees around himself. When it all becomes too much for him he retreats to a tiny workroom in Bayswater.
Most of this film was made in that room, sallying out to face the world when the mood took him. And it took him to some unexpected places, looking for, among other things, a doughnut, a blind bird and buried treasure in the Thames.

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.

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.
