: Pioneers of Photography

Mirror with a Memory
M Daguerre shows the plain plate of copper; he places it, in your presence, in his apparatus, and, in three minutes, he takes out the metal and shows it to you, covered with a charming design.
To the public the first Daguerreotypes seemed like witchcraft. NICÉPHORE NIÉPCE made his first experiments as early as 1816, but he died before his partner, Daguerre, achieved success.

: Lifestyle: Freddie Laker: Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

Freddie Laker's answer to that time-honoured question was 'I do' and he became one at the age of 35. He did so in a business known as much for its failures as its successes - independent aviation - and is an almost classic case of the tea boy who became the tycoon.
Tonight's film presents a close-up of this volatile, energetic and controversial figure who is always prepared to carry the flag of British private aviation against any foe, anywhere.

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.
