This week : Local Rag
Every week more than 30 million people read their ' local rag.'
Jeremy James and a Man Alive team evaluate the changes with a look at two weeklies. The Bedfordshire Times is now technologically more advanced than most national papers and its former reporter FRANK BRANSTON won the Provincial Journalist of the Year Award for his investigative Stories. The Craven Herald and Pioneer celebrates its centenary at Skipton, Yorkshire, this week. It is the traditional weekly: still with adverts on the front page, a corps of voluntary correspondents and its editor, JOHN MITCH -ELL, at 75 has been with the paper for 50 years.

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.
