' When we take cricket too seriously we would do well to remember that it's only a game. But we should also remember that it's probably the best loved game of all.' (JOHN ARLOTT ) Well loved as cricket is, it is not immune from change. On the surface all is well, but a number of developments - not least the spread of sponsorship, increasing commercialisation and the advent of the much-publicised touring ' circus ' - mean that cricket's future might be beset with problems ...

: Fidel Castro Speaks

'History will absolve me' wrote Fidel Castro (above, in 1955) in a Cuban jail after his first abortive attempt to overthrow the government. The document was smuggled out, much of it in tiny writing and rolled up inside cigars, and established Castro as leader of the Cuban liberation movement.
Now, in a unique filmed interview, Fidel Castro justifies his claim, recalling, with the aid of filmed reconstructions and archive material, events of the last 20 years which led to the establishment of Cuba's revolutionary government. The Cuban leader also explains his country's special affinity with Angola and comments on other aspects of Cuba's foreign relations.

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.
