: Look, Stranger

A Fortune in Flowers
Patrick O'Hara can make £1,000 from a buttercup, yet his special gift might have gone undiscovered but for one stroke of fate - he was made redundant. When his services as an agricultural adviser were no longer required, he threw caution to the winds, and, with his wife's blessing, bought a kiln. He planned to make his new-found hobby his living.
Today he is a sculptor in porcelain. making delicate, life-size pieces that are eagerly bought by collectors. His subjects are always wild flowers and insects, and he prides himself on re-creating exactly the shade of a butterfly's wing. or the bloom on a petal.

: Horizon: Not the Cheapest But the Best

Leonard Rossiter investigates a Victorian phenomenon: Isambard Kingdom Brunel (1806-1859)
At the age of 20, Brunel was engineer in charge of the Thames Tunnel, the first tunnel ever driven under a river, now used by the Underground. At 27 he designed the Great Western Railway, completed from London to Bristol when he was 35. He also built the first transatlantic steam-ship, the first screw-propelled liner, and the Great Eastern, each in turn by far the largest ships to sail the seas.
While he was directing his great works, Brunel confided his private doubts and ambitions to secret journals. Leonard Rossiter, using many unpublished letters and diaries, plays a dual role, as Brunel himself, and as narrator visiting the scenes of Brunel's triumphs.

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.
