: The Gun

A series of ten programmes presenting the history and development of the firearm.
1: The Great Leveller
Introduced by Christopher Roads
Until the splitting of the atom in this century no single invention has had such a profound effect on history and society as the gun. It changed not only the pattern of warfare and destroyed the old concept of chivalry, but altered every aspect of life, law and the boundaries of empires. From obscure and mysterious origins in China via the writings of an English monk, gunpowder took only a century to change itself from a source of wonder and amusement into real gunpowder with all that that implied and for the gun to emerge as a device sufficiently important to exercise even the mind of Leonardo da Vinci. Narrated by DUNCAN CARSE

Unknown: Duncan Carse
Editor: Dick Allen
Producer: Ray Sutcliffe

: The Montreal Olympics

The official film of the Games of the XXI Olympiad which took place in 1976. Every Olympic film has its own special flavour, its own individual approach. This time we see, through the eyes of the cameras. some of the anguish and heart-break of the losers, as well as the joy and fulfilment of the winners. The film looks back on the highlights of the Montreal Games, with the personal triumphs and agonies of many of the contestants.

: Film International: The Spider's Stratagem

Giulio Brogi , Alida Valli
One of the most successful foreign films shown in Britain this year begins a new season of the best of today's international cinema.
Bertolucci's intriguing mystery concerns a young man who returns to the provincial town where he was born and where his father died a hero. The son's request for details of his father's death meets a surprisingly hostile response-even the men who had been closest to him give a strangely unconvincing account of a Fascist murder. The harder the young man fights the web of intrigue he discovers, the more closely it surrounds 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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
