The Bird Men of Steyning Bowl
Hang-gliding, a new sport in the sky, is growing all over the country, but there are risks. Two British pilots have died trying to beat the world's soaring record.
The first Hang-Gliding Championships were held this summer at Steyning Bowl in Sussex, and Bob Fisher jumped off with some of the competitors to experience at first hand the pleasures and problems of this young sport of flying enthusiasts.

: The Priest, the Painter and the Devil

When Henry Lincoln first began researching the story of a French village priest who was led by secret parchments to the source of great wealth, he explored tempting possibilities. Had the priest found the lost treasure of Jerusalem concealed by the Visigoths, or that hidden by the Templars?
In this Chronicle programme Henry Lincoln is now able to offer a solution to the mystery of what exactly the priest had found at Rennes-le-Chateau. His solution, until recently, had remained hidden in a painting by Nicolas Poussin, Les Bergers d'Arcadie.

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.
