Presented by Robert Erskine
A series of six programmes in connection with the current Exhibition of Gold and Silver at the British Museum. 5: Whose Wealth?
The Roman Empire's civil and military elite were rewarded with gold and silver for loyal service. However, it was the population at large that had to foot the bill through taxes, and it turned out in the end that the Empire could not afford its own defence.

: Women at War

A Yesterday's Witness series of six programmes with women of the First World War.
5: Standinq in for brother Bob
1916: Bob Murphy, a railway goods porter, was called up. His young sister Ann took over his job. She is one of several Liverpool women who describe, 60 years later, the trials and tribulations of moving in to work on the railways, in munitions factories, in offices, on the trams, in engineering works: a world previously reserved for men. They are typical of tens of thousands of women and girls throughout the country: they needed the money, the breadwinners were away and the jobs just had to be done. They weren't consciously working for women's rights - but struck a resounding blow just the same.

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.
