: Summer of 76

Summer Exhibition Reporter Jack Pizzey
More than 5,000 artists travel to London each year to try their luck in Britain's largest and most popular art show, the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Sunday painters, obsessive painters, art teachers, ' 'primitive' painters. Some have been rejected in previous years -but still come. Others are trying for the first time. For where else do the unknown have the chance of hanging next to the famous?
Summer Exhibition (' best show of the week' said CLIVE JAMES when it was first shown) took a look at last year's Academy and followed some of the hopefuls.

: Horizon

Blueprints in the Bloodstream
Tonight's Horizon tells the story of a unique experiment in medical science which could mean we are on the brink of a new era in medicine. Scientists have identified a system of markers, tissue-types on blood cells, which indicate our vulnerability to a whole range of diseases like multiple sclerosis and diabetes. Cancer and heart disease are excluded-but these tissue-types have been linked with a high percentage of the major diseases affecting the western world. They indicate which of us is at risk. Until now, most of these diseases have been very little understood. But this research is shedding new light on how they develop - and opening up the possibility of prevention. Narrator RAY MOORE

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.
