: Living on the Land

Self-Sufficiency at Fachongle Isaf
For nearly 20 years John Seymour has fed himself and his family from small plots of land and now that self-sufficiency is fashionable he has become the unofficial instructor and prophet of the movement. He describes himself as a crank peasant but he is an easy-going and practical man with none of the intensity normally associated with his unorthodox opinions and practices.

: Five Minutes to Midnight

A personal report by Alan Hart
' The most dangerous border in the world is one you will not find on any map. It is the line which divides our planet into two worlds, one rich, one poor. It's this division with all its inequalities and injustices, and their likely consequences which threaten the well-being and perhaps the survival of all.'
Tonight's film looks at how catastrophe for hundreds of millions of people could happen - but why it need not.
The film has taken two years to make and was shot in many countries, rich and poor, by an independent film company. This is the British television premiere of a film which will be shown throughout the world.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
