: Europa

Chunnel or no Chunnel?
Ever since 1802 when Napoleon was presented with the plans for a candlelit carriageway under the Channel, the tunnel project has been talked about, dreamt of, disputed, ridiculed and, mainly from our side -mistrusted. At the time when Paris and London are once again discussing the question, French TV looks back on the incredible story of an idea which has survived over 150 years.
' The past is important,' the French reporter says, ' as only then can one understand the deep-rooted reservations the British have towards this kind of link with the continent.'

: The Ascent of Man

Another chance to see this personal view by J. Bronowski 2: The Harvest of the Seasons
DR bronowski begins the second programme with the Long Spring at the end of the Ice Age. As the ice retreats and the land flowers, Man the hunter turns to agriculture, domesticating plant and animal, imposing his will on the wild wheat and the horse. In the bitter conflict between the settled farmer and the mounted warrior, Dr Bronowski discovers the intellectual roots of war, and shows how even the descendants of the mightiest warrior of all, Ghengis Khan , were compelled to settle.

: Real Time

Television coverage yesterday of the Royal Wedding represented the biggest outside broadcast operation British television has ever mounted. During the ' rehearsal ' on Tuesday and early on the day of the wedding, Real Time observed the cameras, directors, commentators and engineers in Westminster Abbey, along the procession route and in a studio at Television Centre which was the nerve-centre for the whole operation.

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.
