A History of the Geordie Speaking Peoples by ALAN PLATER with Ian Cullen and David Buck
From T. Dan Smith back to the Venerable Bede, 1100 years of the gossip, scandals, successes, disasters and cupidities that happened by the banks of the Tyne and behind the facades of Newcastle. The men and women whose lives are remembered in the programme are played by a company led by David Buck as the eternal Geordie; with Judi Lamb and Lyn Douglas as the women in his family and James Bate as his son.

: It's in My Blood

Women's golf (along with lady drivers and mothers-in-law) used to be the butt of all masculine ridicule. Even today, there is one club in England which forbids women to walk past its windows wearing trousers.
That club is not Sunningdale, where the Colgate International Women's Championship is staged next week.
On the eve of this event, this programme reflects the endless practice and years of dedication put in by the top women golfers in the world, including Ren6e Powell , the only black touring lady professional, as they strive to become best in a sport where not just talent but appearance counts as well.

: Horizon

To Die - To Live
The Survivors of Hiroshima
The dropping of the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima was the greatest single catastrophe man has ever inflicted upon man. But even from this clinical, impersonal mass-annihilation a great many people did come out alive - though burdened with guilt, fear and with the danger of possible radiation after-effects.
To mark the anniversary of the Hiroshima bomb, Horizon presents a film about the thoughts and feelings of the survivors. Based on interviews with a great many of them, it presents an impression of what it is like to go through the A-bomb experience. How does man behave in a cataclysm? How can people, or even a whole city, live with - and live by - the memory of such a shattering event? And in what sense are we all survivors of Hiroshima'?
This memorable programme ..

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.
