: The British Connection?

Twelve films from different parts of the UK which explore people's sense of identity. 6: Cheam
Deep in commuter country, on the edge of the Green Belt, Cheam has a lot going for it. Near the West End of London but not too near, it has a village atmosphere and an air of prosperity and stability. The verges are well-clipped, the sports clubs well-used, and the pubs wellpatronised. It's a place where the traditional English virtues of decency, patriotism and self-reliance are still taken very seriously.

Rippon on the Road
Traffic jams make the headlines almost every weekend of the summer. When the cause is an accident the emergency services often have difficulty getting to the scene and the police can do little to ease the congestion. Faced with similar problems seven years ago Belgium solved theirs by using helicopters.

: BC: The Archaeology of the Bible Lands

A series of 12 programmes Written and presented by Magnus Magnusson 9: A House Divided
With the death of Solomon, about 930 BC, his united kingdom splits in two. Kings and queens, like Jezebel, Ahab and Jeroboam, emerge from the books of Kings, ruling over a new kingdom of Israel in the north and following many of the abominated Canaanite ways. Gods like Baal are worshipped again, bitterly opposed by the Hebrew prophets Elijah and Elisha with their emphasis on Jehova as the One True God.
Meanwhile in the south, the kingdom of Judah struggles to maintain that true way of Jehova from its capital, Jerusalem. In Ahab's palace at Samaria, MAGNUS MAGNUSSON treads the very paths that Queen Jezebel trod and in Jerusalem he explores the rock-hewn tombs built into the hillside for the palace favourites.

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.

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