: A Taste of Britain

The second of five programmes 2: Making the Most of It - Yorkshire
'A Regional dish is a whole countryside'
Yorkshire has always been noted for the quality of its food; although in the old industrial West Riding the tradition - of necessity-has been to make the most of very little. Today, in more prosperous times, the tastes born of hardship still/persist.
A liking for tripe, elder, and black puddings; for home baked bread and Yorkshire pudding and, in some parts, even for the leaf of the sweet dock.

: The Ascent of Man

A personal view by J. Bronowski in 13 programmes
12: Generation upon Generation
Strangely, it is the sciences of mathematics and physics that have revolutionised biology in our own century and brought a new precision to our understanding of life. DR BRONOWSKI follows the story from the quiet experiments of Gregor Mendel to the awesome, and perhaps dangerous, power that our unravelling of the code of inheritance has given us. He argues that we should see sex as the gift that preserves the diversity of human individuality.
He is everything a professor should be ... informal, quite uripatronising, but often exalted ... (THE LISTENER) Producer DICK GILLING

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.
