: Gardeners' World

from Clacks Farm with Arthur Billitt and Peter Seabrook
The greatest cost saver in the garden is propagating one's own plants. Rooting cuttings is the simplest way of doing this, taking soft, half ripe and hard wood from perennial plants and even rooting cuttings from the leaves.

When The City Smiles ...
When the City smiles, can we smile too? Most people have savings in the City - in insurance companies, pension funds, or as small investors in the Stock Exchange. Over the last few years because of inflation our savings have fallen in value. So, does the City's new confidence mean better times around the corner?

: Horizon: The Cry for Help

Every five minutes of every day, someone somewhere in Britain takes an overdose of drugs. While our suicide rate is among the lowest in the world and falling, our overdose rate is among the highest and rising by ten per cent each year, especially among teenage girls. Psychiatrists call these unhappy people 'parasuicides'; hospital doctors call overdosing a 'national epidemic'.
Anne is 18; an alcoholic; living in London; she has taken a dozen overdoses. Why? Did she really want to kill herself? She says: 'It's mainly for help'. How likely is she to do it again? Horizon looks at those who are making this cry for help and those who are trying to answer it. Overdosing is a sad by-product of modern living; it is also a practical economic burden costing the NHS £5 million a year. Overdosers already occupy one emergency bed in every five; if things go on as they are, by 1984 they will occupy them all.

: The Book Programme

Robert Robinson introduces the new series with a profile of Richard Adams
1 For a man who has been in the office at ten o'clock with a clean collar for 25 years, this is a wonderful life.'
RICHARD ADAMS was 54 when his first book, Watership Down, made him world famous. The rabbit saga, first told as a story to his children, has now sold five million copies. Adams's second novel, Shardik, was another best-seller and now his third, The Plague Dogs, is just out.
ROBERT ROBINSON visited Adams on the Isle of Man, where he now lives, to talk to him about fame and fortune and about work in progress, which includes a new departure - an erotic novel.

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.
