: The Water Margin

A free-wheeling adaptation of the Chinese classic.
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 ...
On Kao Chiu's orders, the Tsengs and their bandit army bring disaster to Chao Kai's village.

: The Man Alive Report

Investigates, Discovers, Questions With MICHAEL DEAN , JEREMY JAMES
JEANNE LACHARD , JACK PIZZEY
NICK ROSS , HAROLD WILLIAMSON This week: On Her Majesty's Secretive Service
007 turned secrecy into a money-spinner, but for many ordinary people it's a costly reality. The Official Secrets Act was rushed through Parliament in 1911 as a reaction to the scare about German spies dropping out of the skies. Now, say the critics, it's too often used against the man in the street.
On film, Man Alive reports on a wide range of examples of how secrecy can work-from the residents of one town who discovered too late that a road was coming through their houses, to the case of Freddie Laker who found that secrecy nearly stopped Skytrain from getting off the ground.
In the studio are people who say that there are times when silence is the bureaucrat's favourite weapon, and there are others who argue that a little knowledge can be a very dangerous thing.
Government periodically reviews the working of the Official Secrets Act - but with little effect. What's happened to all those promises about ' open government'?

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.
