: In the Making

A celebratory series of 13 programmes for Jubilee Year about craftsmen in Britain. 10: Fireworks
'... I don't know what it was about the fireworks that were sold in my childhood but they seemed to be much larger and they had much more exciting labels-there was a sort of magical touch about them and when I had brought them home from the shop I used to like to fetch them out every night and look at them and play with them-I can remember at times them getting quite cross about it and saying " If you don't stop playing with those we'll throw them on the fire! " '
Ronald Lancaster has not lost that original fascination with fireworks, despite being a housemaster and an ordained priest, except that now he doesn't have to get his fireworks from the shop ...

: One Pair of Hands - David Wynne

A documentary portrait of a sculptor and his work.
For a sculpture called Boy with a Dolphin he took up swimming in a dolphin pool; for a commission to sculpt a grizzly bear he went off to track the reclusive and dangerous grizzlies of the Canadian Rockies.
David Wynne has 11 sculptures prominently displayed in London, and many more around the world. He was recently commissioned to design the Queen's Jubilee Medal.
This film studies the life and work of an extraordinary artist, including the progress of one sculpture, a marble reclining nude for Bowood House, from sketch-pad to stone.

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.
