: Quietly in Switzerland

A party of 20 children take a final holiday from school and enjoy a week in Switzerland. They see the wood-carvers of Brienz, the cheesemakers of Niedermuhlen, bears in Berne and they go up and down the mountains by cable-car and by rack and pinion railway.
It is a holiday full of new sights and sounds - but they see only the sights as they are all profoundly deaf.
Introduced by Bill Northwood
(This will be a milestone in the history of television. For the first time anywhere in the world, a programme will be transmitted to two sets of viewers at the same time. For most viewers it will be seen as a normal programme. but for deaf viewers with Ceefax sets it will be seen with a visual commentary. There will be sub-titles but, for the first time ever, only for Ceefax viewers who want them),

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.
