: BC: The Archaeology of the Bible Lands

Written and presented by Magnus Magnusson 1: In the Beginning
' In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth ' - so begins the best-known book of the Western world; best-known, but perhaps not nowadays the best-understood.
What is the Bible? How did it come to be written? To what historical events does it truly relate? Tonight MAGNUS MAGNUSSON begins his 12-part investigation with a search into remotest antiquity-contrasting the first eight chapters of Genesis - the stories of Adam, the Garden of Eden, Noah and the Flood - with our latest knowledge about the birth of man and of civilisation...

: Thursday Cinema: H. M. Pulham, Esq

King Vidor Season
starring Hedy Lamarr Robert Young
The product of a conservative Boston family, young Harry Pulham seems destined to lead a wealthy uneventful existence, until service overseas in World War I leaves him with a restless spirit of rebellion. Then he meets Marvin Myles, a beautiful career girl who is to alter drastically his outlook on life. Vidor assembled a fine cast for the film version of J. P. Marquand 's novel, the kind of saga of American life which always attracted him.

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.

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