: Chronicle

The Chronicle Archaeology Award Magnus Magnusson introduces a new Chronicle award. It is being given to amateur archaeology groups for local rescue projects which have saved threatened sites or buildings, and which have contributed to a greater understanding of the community heritage.
More people are becoming aware of the threat to our archaeological heritage and their interest has led them to preserve a Roman Bath House under a motorway, locate Neolithic sites before they disappear into gravel pits. survey the 14th-century houses of East Sussex and chart the length of the largest Anglo-Saxon monument in this country - Offa's Dyke on the Welsh border.
Twenty-two groups entered for the award and Chronicle shows the work of the six finalists. The award is presented by HRH The Duke of Gloucester in the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich.

: Tibet - Roof of the World

A personal report by Felix Greene
On a remote inaccessible plateau, the highest in the world, stands Tibet. A land as large in area as France, Germany and Italy combined and yet a place that most of us know little about; a place shrouded in mystery that has been visited by a mere handful of foreigners.
FELIX GREENE 'S unique film creates a remarkable picture of a country which until 1959 still had a God-King - the 14th Dalai Lama.

Joseph Conrad
Introduced by Gavin Millar
A British film The Duellists starring Keith Carradine , Harvey Keitel and Albert Finney won the Special Jury Award at Cannes last year and it opened in London last week. It is a finely photographed period film set in the beautiful Dordogne but the most admirable thing about it may be that it is as faithful an adaptation of Conrad as any the screen has seen - and there have been many, from a 1926 silent version of Nostromo to Richard Brooks 's Lord Jim and Hitchcock's Sabotage.

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.
