A thousand years ago, in China, the souls of 108 knights were reborn to fight the tyranny and corruption of the Government. They lived by their wits and their swords in the marshy lands of the water margins of Lian Shan
Po. Lin Chung was their leader and never a day went by without a damsel to be rescued or a wrong to be put right. Or so the legend says ...

: Summer of 77

The country celebrated a Royal Jubilee. England won the Ashes. We grumbled about the weather. And there were other things to remember, too.
A series of seven new films 2: Officer Class
Reporter Jack Pizzey
The Navy loves its salty stories. When the now-famous Admiral ' Jackie ' Fisher joined in 1854 he had to leap naked over a chair to test his fitness, and write out the Lord's Prayer as a test of education and moral fibre.
They tell this tale at Britannia Royal Naval College at Dartmouth to illustrate the changes in officer training for today's sophisticated service.
Dartmouth teaches leadership, unashamedly through stress, both for the men and the Wrens. Its failure rate is high.
This film traces the fortunes of this summer term's officers under training, including an 18-year-old straight from comprehensive school, a rating with ten years' experience on the lower decks and a Wren carrying on a family tradition.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
