The Black Holes of Gravity
Gravity creates and destroys. In the universe it brings together the atoms of hydrogen gas to form stars but it also brings about the stars' collapse and final extinction. It has created our world and will probably destroy it, too - to leave a black hole, the greatest mystery of science today.
The black hole is a kind of cosmic whirlpool, gradually sucking in the stars around it. At its centre is nothing and, surprisingly, the possibility of time travel. As you travel inside a black hole, you might meet yourself falling in ... Presented by Professor John Taylor

: Six of the Best: 1: The Wellington Museum

Edwin Mullins looks at six unusual London Museums.

Apsley House, the home of the hero of Waterloo, was known as No 1 London. Wellington chose the contents and arranged their setting. They're still there: the old master paintings (Goya, Velasquez, Rubens); the military honours that were heaped on him by grateful monarchs, who thanks to Wellington had got their kingdoms back; the larger-than-life statue of his old adversary Napoleon; the largest silver service in the world-all in a setting appropriate for the most famous man in Europe.

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.
