: A Diary of Britain

Fifteen documentary films about life in Britain made week-by-week from September to Christmas last year.
4: Gamblers of the Vale
A few square miles of not always very good land along the Avon is one of the most intensively cultivated parts of Britain. The Vale of Evesham in Worcestershire, grows a greater variety of fruit and vegetables than anywhere in England and sends them all over the country. The growers are gamblers, using muck, luck, science and hard work to survive in the chancy world of horticulture. This film looks at some of them during the first week of October last year.

: Horizon

Tracks on the Oregon Trail
In the 1840s covered wagons carried 30,000 Americans west to find a ' better life '. They found it in Oregon, in the beautiful and fertile valleys of the Pacific north west. They learnt to care for their new paradise and passed on that concern to sons and grandsons.
In the 1970s a new trail has been blazed in Oregon; legislation makes it the most environmentally protected spot in the western world. Modern Oregon was first to clean-up its polluted rivers; first to introduce a 55 mph speed limit; first to require refunds not only on bottles, but on cans too; first to ban the rip-off can cap; first to give fare-free rides on city buses; first to ban poisonous herbicides. Horizon visits the state that's become the symbol for a new America. Could it be a blueprint for the rest of us? Or will the pioneers' paradise give way to the pressures of the 1980s?

: Soho After Dark

No visitor to London, be he from abroad, from the provinces, or from the suburbs, fails to make at least one pilgrimage to that village a few yards to the north of Piccadilly Circus, called ' Soho '.
This is a filmed impression of the glamour, glitter and downright sleaziness of London's most famous square mile at its most beguiling hour.

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.
