: Thomas Carlyle Lived Here

Malcolm Muggeridge in Chelsea
In the mid-19th century Carlyle was to many people a saviour. He seemed to put his finger on all that was wrong with society. In an age of religious uncertainty he was the perfect ' sage,' answering to people's need for a radical social critic who expressed more than mere despair. Few people read him now, but to Malcolm Muggeridge it seems likely that before very long Carlyle will become' a cult figure, especially among the young.

: Man Alive

Ever since the first council tenants moved into the first tower blocks there have been growing noises of disappointment, even shouts of protest.
But still there are more tower blocks under construction; and there are two million people already living high above the ground. It has now been established that the young mothers ' up there' tend to be depressed; tranquillised; imprisoned with frustrated children, cut off from play space; frightened by the vandalism and crime.
What's to be done about it? On film, JACK PIZZEY goes up to the 20th floor to meet some of the families, and DESMOND WiLCOX brings them face to face with planners and politicians to see if together they can find some answers.

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.
