: Open Door

Looks back ... 100 programmes made by more than 100 groups and individuals - from all parts of the community. Some of them return to talk about why they wanted ' their own say in their own way' on subjects ranging from man-powered flight to cystitis, and dossers to transexuals. They'll be talking to Chris Dunkley , television critic of the Financial Times, about what they achieved with their programmes, and he'll be adding reactions of his own.
Open Door programmes are made by the public in co-operation with the BBC's Community Programme Unit.

: Goodbye America

Peace or war ... Two hundred years ago the House of Commons met for a decisive debate - at stake, whether or not the rebel colonists would remain British.
Tonight Robert McKenzie and Robert McNeil take a step back in time, and take TV with them, to understand what was happening in Britain-on the brink of war-and the momentous events in America - on the brink of independence.
From the House of Commons of 1776, they introduce:

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.
