For years, France has conducted a highly independent foreign and defence policy in the belief that a special world-role and a distinctive destiny await her. But disillusion with detente and crisis in Iran and Afghanistan have prompted calls for greater Western unity. In an increasingly divided world must France now decide where her fundamental loyalties lie? David Jessel reports.

: In the Making

The last of nine films about arts and crafts in Britain today. Dorothy Bohm
'I can never, even after all these years, release the shutter haphazardly. When I release it, I have got to feel " this is it ".'
DOROTHY BOHM came to England in 1939 from the Baltic States. She studied photography at the Manchester College of Technology and at the age of 21 became a successful portrait photographer. When she began using natural light, each picture became for her a fragment of the ever-changing imagery that she wanted to possess. A photograph is made in a fraction of a second. The film examines what happens in that second, both to the photographer and the person being photographed.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
