: A Horse of Us Own

A maidens' race at Chester; hardly the highlight of the flat season, but for the group of Yorkshiremen who own one of the horses running it's just as important as any classic. They've decided to dabble in what is traditionally regarded as a wealthy man's game. But the dreams of riches are not easily turned to reality. Now they badly need a winner.

: Nine Lives

A season of film biographies of artists and musicians.
Getting Away with Murder or The Childhood of Claude Chabrol
An Omnibus film about the greatest exponent of crime films since Hitchcock.
'I like to see people kill other people. Murder in films adds a little spice, makes the audience feel they haven't wasted their evening.'
Claude Chabrol , director of films like Blood Wedding, The Butcher, The Beast Must Die, narrates his own - sometimes tongue-in-cheek - autobiography. Scenes from his childhood are re-enacted by the Chabrol family, with a special appearance by Stephane Audran , Chabrol's wife, and star of many of his films,
' I prefer to see blood spilt in bourgeois homes - like to see them suffer a little.'
Introducing Thomas Chabrol as the young Claude.
Provocative and constantly entertaining ... A new and ambitious approach to TV biography. (THE GUARDIAN) Film editor PAUL HUMFRESS

: The Hong Kong Beat

Nine documentary programmes which take a close look at a controversial police force in action. 3: The Bamboo Curtain
Hong Kong keeps its precarious hold on the rump of China by the grace of Peking. A delicate and unspoken code of behaviour exists between the two countries, which is practical and by which neither loses face.
But much to the embarrassment of HM Government, a lot of Chinese want to get out of China to Hong Kong. Without visas, their best hope of reaching freedom is to swim. But there are also the patrol boats of the Royal Hong Kong Police. Whatever his private feelings, each captain knows what he must do if he comes across freedom swimmers.

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.
