How Others Saw Us ...
What sort of pictures did television viewers across the world have of Great Britain in 1975? Worldwide reverses its usual role to see how some of the London correspondents of world television services reported back home on us. The results were funny, gloomy, often critical, sometimes flattering....
' A British virtue,' the Japanese enthused, ' is that they make do and mend.'
' The British disease,' the Swiss diagnosed, ' is caused by a lack of economic flexibility.'
' Does the Queen really need five palaces?' asked the Australians. ' The only thing certain,' concluded the Americans, ' is that the Scots will never bite you to death.' Frank Gillard introduces views of 1975 and thoughts for 1976.

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.
