The Brendan Voyage
Is it possible that a medieval Irish monk could have reached America nearly 1,000 years before Columbus? Could he have sailed in a small leather boat across the cold, savage spaces of the North Atlantic?
In an attempt to prove whether such a voyage was possible, Tim Severin and two colleagues risked their lives in a replica of the craft that legend has it Brendan used to make the voyage. They met all the hazards one might expect: whales, appalling seas, icebergs that could have torn their small boat apart; and they survived. If Brendan made the same journey we shall never know, but at least Tim Severin and his friends have proved that he could have done. This is the film of that proving voyage.

Poetry in the speech of ordinary people-one Scot, one Geordie, one West Indian and one from the suburbs of London. The audience at the Questors Theatre, Ealing, found that poetry can be comprehensive and lively and as different as the place that gave it birth.

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.
