Search for the Master Carpenters
Cecil Hewett has developed a new science in his own lifetime. His is the revolutionary method of dating historic wooden buildings from the carpenters' joints used to put them together.
As a result he has found the earliest-known half-timbered cottage in the country. He has shown how the Christmas tree of interior woodwork has kept Salisbury Cathedral spire standing for over. 600 years. In a Sussex church he has identified a wooden roof dating from the days of the Anglo-Saxon kings.
Hewett's latest claim is to have discovered the only known post of pre-Norman date still supporting a standing building. Chronicle specially commissioned a radio-carbon dating of the wood to see if he is right.

In Their Own Image
Two women photographers turn the camera on themselves ... Time Release
For over a year Linda Benedict -Jones photographed herself, by using the time release on her Pentax camera. The results-studies in and out of doors, at home, in hospital, in the bath and in the bedroom - provide a witty and sometimes poignant self-portrait of this extremely talented photographer.
Facing Up to Myself
At the age of 40, having spent most of her working life photographing other people for a liv ing, Jo Spence began to have serious doubts about what she was doing and why. Overnight she stopped taking photographs altogether and turned instead to an exploration of her own image as seen by others - snapshots of herself from the family album. It began as a kind of therapy and ended as an exhibition called Beyond the Family Album, which Jo Spence hopes will help others to see beyond the smiling images in their own family albums.

: Midweek Movie: Games of Love and Loneliness

Lil Terselius Stefan Ekman
In tonight's love story the passionate - and pure - young love between Lydia and Arvid is thwarted by the conventions of 19th-century Sweden. So when they meet again, a few years later, it seems like a second chance. Now, however, each is seeking something different from a relationship in which sensuality is their only common ground.

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.
