: A Taste of Britain

The fourth of five programmes From Kedgeree to Gingerbread
From kedgeree to gingerbread, from the childhood delights of the aniseed ball to the more sophisticated gin and tonic - so many of the foods we now think of as English owe their origins to other countries. And that goes for the most famous of all our beverages - the British cuppa.
It is not just food but people as well. From the Huguenot refugees who settled around Spitalfields in the 17th century to the Jews of the late 19th century, we have been bequeathed foods we now regard as our own.
In this programme Derek Cooper explores a few of the many good things that have flowed up the River Thames and examines the profound effect they have had-and are still having - on the Taste of Britain.

: Passage West

Two films that tell the human story of the great migration from Britain across the Atlantic 100 years ago.
1: The Dream of Freedom
The Jess family are emigrating from Ulster - today. They follow in the wake of ten million people from Ireland, Scotland and Eng- , land, who between 1800 and 1900 J left their homes and looked for a new life in Canada and America. Why did they go?
This film uses songs of the time and the words of letters, diaries, government reports and the stories of their descendants, to portray the situations some of them faced and how they made up their minds to go.

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.
