The Price Fixers
For two-and-a-half years almost every price increase has had to be approved by the Price Commission - a band of 700 civil servants monitoring industry's profits up and down the country.

James Bellini and Alan Watson examine the company books and Industry's claim that price control has been a costly mistake. With BILL KERR ELLIOTT and JOHN SWINFIELD

: Spirit of the Age

Eight films on eight centuries of British Architecture.
2: A New Heaven, a New Earth: The Tudor Renaissance Written and narrated by Roy Strong
The Tudor and Elizabethan age was a period of great social turmoil and artistic splendour. In this film ROY STRONG, director of the Victoria and Albert Museum , shows how those twin upheavals in English life, the Reformation and the Renaissance, were reflected in architecture. In the golden age of Elizabeth's reign, vast palaces for the new rich were built from the stones of ruined abbeys; state replaced church; and brick gave way to the marble of the Italian Renaissance.

: Just Another Saturday

Winner of the 1975 Italia Prize for Television Drama Programmes by Peter McDougall
with John Morrison as John
It is a great day for the stick-swinger in the parade - but the day shows him more than the bands, the banners and the music: for the first time he starts to think about his future.
"The play didn't let up its grip from the opening blast. It was a triumph." (DAILY MIRROR) "Peter McDougall's success and the success of his actors was total. Not a false note anywhere." (THE SCOTSMAN) "A superb piece of television, magnificently visual and filled with a terrible authenticity, Just Another Saturday was a triumph." (GLASGOW HERALD)

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.
