Siena: A Race with the Past
One of the great commercial centres of medieval Europe, the city of Siena in Tuscany appears almost unchanged today. Old traditions also continue, like the famous annual horse-race, the Palio, held every summer on the city square.
This film, made by Italian Television, captures the excitement of the Palio and relates it to everyday life in Siena then and now.

: The Lost Wilderness

A Borrovian stroll through what was once ' Wild Wales ' 5: Proceed on Journey
John Seymour continues along the path of the Victorian writer George Borrow who walked through Wales when it was still a strange and alien land even to its closest neighbours. Some of that strangeness still exists in the mountains of Merioneth, the emptiest acres south of the Scottish border.
George Borrow's route south from Snowdonia leads into an area of central Wales much less marked by modern tourism and industry. In Merioneth, particularly, the language and music of ' 'old' Wales are still strong and the countryside that Borrow described remains much as it was 120 years ago. Or does 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.

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.
