: Horizon

The Case of the Bermuda Triangle There is an area of the Western Atlantic, between Florida and Bermuda, where ships and planes have vanished without trace, in such numbers and in such strange circumstances that seemingly no rational explanations are possible. UFOs, time-space warps, magnetic anomalies have all been seriously suggested as the cause of these disappearances, which are still going on today.
Is there a rational solution to the case of the Bermuda Triangle or is this a mystery that science cannot solve? By investigating some of the best known and more bizarre of these incidents, an answer begins to emerge.

: Dearest Love

(Le Souffle au Coeur)
Directed by Louis MALLE starring
Lea Massari , Benoit Ferreux
The international season of films by six of Europe's most distin- guished directors continues with a French comedy about a young boy tormented by an Oedipus complex Dijon, 1954: 15-year-old Laurent Chevalier has begun to question the ready-made values handed him at school and at home, so his elder brothers decide it is time for his sexual initiation. The growing-up process is halted when Laurent is confined to bed with a heart murmur, but when his mother takes him to a mountain spa to convalesce he leaves his childhood behind for ever.
It's French, frank, Freudian and funny.
Civilised, witty, beautifully acted

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.
