: Europa

In the 1930s, Turkey's Kemal Ataturk swept away the power of the Sultans and planned a prosperous, educated democracy. Today Turkey stands in line for Common Market membership. Swedish and West German TV look at two sides of Ataturk's legacy: the economic reality of Europe's poorest nation, and at persistent accusations of repression and torture.

: One Pair of Eyes: The Road to Ruritania

Paul Johnson on The Road to Ruritania

During the lifetime of most of us Britain has moved into the ranks of the second-class powers. The decline in our power and influence continues. You could say we're on the road to Ruritania.

In the latest in this series of highly personal films, Paul Johnson - journalist, broadcaster and author of a widely acclaimed history of England - gives his views on our latest dilemma. He believes we can only understand the present if we examine our past: 2,000 years of English history provide clues to our present-day difficulties over the Common Market and the economy.

The historian A.J.P. Taylor, as well as Michael Foot, MP, Anthony Howard, and J.B. Priestley contribute to the programme. But the overall view is very much Johnson's own.

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.
