: A Diary of Britain

The last of 15 documentary films about life in Britain made week-by-week from September to Christmas last year.
Christmas at St David 's
In winter, comparative peace returns to St David's, on the most westerly point of Wales, for during the rest of the year it's a honey-pot - a centre of tourism. This birthplace of Wales's patron saint is at once a city and a village. Tonight's programme captures the events leading up to Christmas Day 1978.

: Reputations: Leon Trotsky 1879-1940

Leon Trotsky was born 100 years ago. Along with Lenin he became a hero of the 1917 Russian Revolution, and the creator of the Red Army. Deported by Stalin in 1928, he was finally murdered with an ice-pick by a hired assassin in Mexico. Nicknamed 'The Pen' for his brilliant writings, Trotsky was also a forceful orator, a talented historian and a literary critic. But how effective was he as a politician? Why was he so easily outmanoeuvred by Stalin?
Professor Alee Nove makes his own assessment of the man who was once described as 'a son of a bitch, but the greatest Jew since Jesus Christ' - with contributions from E.H. Carr, Trotsky's grandson, and some of the secretaries and bodyguards who shared his last unhappy years in exile.

: Horizon: Decade

As we move into the 80s, Horizon takes a final look over its shoulder at the last ten years.
Our guide is Gordon Rattray Taylor, the original editor of Horizon. It's been a decade of contrasts; Concorde and man-powered flight, test-tube babies and abortion, nuclear reactors and solar roofs, micro-processors and meditation. The 70s opened with men walking on the moon. It ends with an energy crisis, inflation and unemployment.
Gordon Rattray Taylor's assessment of the 70s pulls no punches; he says we've had some painful shocks, but he detects signs that we are already learning from them as we enter the 80s.

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.
