: Gordon Price and his Inherited Horse

Until middle age GORDON PRICE had lived the quiet and blameless life of a Hereford farmer. Then his father died and left him a wild young horse which Gordon, at risk to life and limb and with unspoken hopes of sudden fortune, broke in, trained and entered for a race. A top jockey was engaged but unfortunately finished so late that he had time to speak only a brief sentence. ' She's useless,' he said. But, as things turned out, that was not quite the end of the story. Narrator DERYCK GUYLER
Film editor PETER GIBBS
Written and produced by DON HAWORTH BBC Manchester

: Beneath the Pennines

Yorkshire cameraman Sid Perou , who has travelled the globe on caving explorations, penetrates the mysterious world beneath the Pennines, and takes us where television has never been before. It's a world seen previously only by that exclusive and obsessive band of explorers - Britain's 20,000 cavers.
White Scar
White Scar, Ingleton, is a popular ' show-cave ' visited by thousands every year. But beyond the barriers a full scientific exploration is being conducted in galleries the public never see. The story so far from geologist Tony Waltham , the project director.

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.
