: The Long Search

A 13-part worldwide series Presented by Ronald Eyre 3: Footprint of the Buddha
'If you think about religion as something to do with God then the story we're going to tell is not about religion, it's about the teaching of a man. It's about Buddhism ... but the question remains - who is the Buddha? ...
... selecting theatre director Ronald Eyre as the frontman was an inspired bit of casting. Eyre poses as neither pundit nor professional but more as a layman genuinely interested and involved. (THE GUARDIAN) Film editor DAVID THOMAS

: Reputations

Richard Crossman :
Chronicler of the Cabinet
The first of an occasional series which re-examines the career and achievement of leading public figures.
Five years after the death of Richard Crossman , Anthony How ard looks back at the life of the writer, teacher, and politician, whose three volumes The Diaries of a Cabinet Minister have been hailed as the most important books on British Government published since the war.
When RICHARD CROSSMAN knew he had not long to live, he fought hard to see the diaries published. He refused to recognise the normal rules governing a Cabinet Minister's account of the performance of his colleagues, and was determined to smash what- he would have called the real enemy of British parliamentary democracy - secrecy.
Reassessing this extraordinary and unorthodox politician are
The Rt Hon Sir Harold Wilson ,The Rt Hon Barbara Castle, MP The Rt Hon Sir Richard Marsh
Lord Armstrong, A. J. P. Taylor and David Marquand.

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.
