: The Past at Work

To Make a Teacup
Demand for fine white and decorated pottery led to a search for new raw materials, the development of new processes, and encouraged new transport systems.
In the fifth of eight films Anthony Burton looks at processes and bottle kilns at Stoke-on-Trent; visits a water-powered flint mill in Staffordshire; and tries his hand at shovelling china clay in Cornwall.

: The Philpott File: Inside a Multinational

The Rise and Fall of a Persian Empire
Of the Seven Sisters, the giants who controlled the world's oil supplies for half a century, five are all-American, one is mainly Dutch. But one sister is British, through and through. She is British Petroleum, the country's biggest corporation by far, and, as taxpayers, we own 46 per cent of the business. How did she manage to survive and grow rich in such a ruthless and predatory family? This, the first of nine films, traces the history of BP from its birth in the Persian desert, through its oil-rich days, to the Arab take-overs in the Gulf; and it introduces some of the men who must carve a future for the company.

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.
