: Look, Stranger: Fishermen of Flookburgh

Harold and Jack Manning, father and son, travel miles across the sands of Morecambe Bay to fish dangerously before the incoming tide overtakes them. Their town is Flookburgh, originally a tenth-century Viking settlement, now the centre of the local potted-shrimp industry.
The Mannings are musical: Harold conducts a local choir and Jack plays first cornet in the Flookburgh Silver Band.

: Horizon: Pedal Power

There are 150 million bicycles in the world. This year, more will be sold than cars.
The bicycle is one of the world's greatest inventions. It evolved from technological complexity and became everyman's transport between 1900 and 1950. Now, the bike is with us again. But will it ease our transport problems? And how safe is it?

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.
