A series of six programmes about the cinema and public opinion in the 1940s. 5: Our Soviet Friends Britain's relationship with the Soviet Union was one of the thorniest propaganda problems of the 1940s.
Between 1939 and 1941 Russia was a totalitarian aggressor. From 1941 to 1945 she was our gallant ally. After 1945 the previous stereotype soon began to return.

: The Chinese Way

Julian Pettifer reports on rural life in China. Nearly one fifth of the population of this planet lives in the People's Republic of China. More than 900 million - increasing by ten million each year. How will China continue to feed one fifth of mankind? The Chinese way since the revolution in 1949 has been to organise the peasantry which comprises three-quarters of the population in agricultural communes.
By looking at several examples of these unique institutions in different parts of China, tonight's film sets out to explore how the age-old threat of famine has been turned back, and how most Chinese people - the peasants - are now faring since the death of Chairman Mao.

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.

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