Jimmy the One
JAMES PURVIS is the oldest ships' pilot on the River Tyne. Son of a pilot, grandson of a pilot, he is proud of a piloting pedigree which began more than 300 years ago in the days when the Tyne was one of the most dangerous rivers on earth. Today the port is changing fast, but men who know the river as well as Jimmy does are still essential.

: Flame in the North

I know that you wish to remain neutral - but I can assure you that the Great Powers will not allow it
(Stalin to the Finns: 1939)

Finland made an unforgettable impression on the rest of the world in the Winter War of 1939-40 with white-clad ski troops skirmishing through the pine forests against Russian armoured columns.

But that war is just part of the extraordinary and unexpected story of Finland. Chronicle, using much material never before seen in Britain, tells how this small country of only 41 million people came into being and how, against all odds and terrible dangers, it has survived to this day.

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.
