: The World About Us

The Corncrake and the Croft
To the birdwatcher, the Outer Hebrides are renowned as a place to see the rare corncrake or the black-throated diver ... To the more casual visitor they're a place of wild beauty and savage weather. But to the crofters they are a tough home from which to harvest a living through basic agriculture and fishing.
The irony of the place is that, although the crofters are almost unaware of their unusual bird neighbours, their small fields and ancient techniques preserve the habitat on which the birds depend.
... an absolute beauty, a celebratory collage of the people, creatures, landscape and elements * . s (THE OBSERVER)

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.
