: The Flying Boats

The last of three programmes
In the Second World War the flying boats of RAF Coastal Command played a crucial part in the war at sea and it was the Sunderland that played the leading role. In peacetime they became part of the BOAC fleet of aircraft on the re-opened Empire routes, but their civilian role was short-lived. Bigger airports and larger run-ways meant bigger and faster land-planes and the flying boat was redundant. The last to be built in 1952 was the Princess, the largest aircraft in the world at the time. She lived for only one year.
David Lomax concludes the story of the flying boats - a story many believe should have no ending.

: Something Else

The sixth in a series of seven programmes made by young people for young people. Tonight's programme comes from Coventry.
' Some people might say we're the people Mary Whitehouse warned us about. In this show we meet a lot of people classed as " different." Some are gay, others caught up in the crossfire of East/West cultures. Then there's the guy with his own alternative to the music press and the girl who actually likes the theatre! And more ... Live music from Siouxsie and the Banshees and Coventry band Gods Toys.'

: Horizon

Anatomy of a Volcano
On 18 May 1980 a young geologist radioed a warning. Moments later he was killed by an explosion more terrible than any seen in North West America. The volcanic blast of Mount St Helens that took his and 62 other lives was 500 times the power of the Hiroshima bomb. For 30 kilometres it stripped the branches from the national forest and combed the tree trunks flat against the hills. Digging ash out of their mouths with their fingers, in order to breathe, survivors struggled for hours through a suffocating cloud which blotted out the sun.
Throughout the summer Horizon followed the geologists as they landed their helicopters in the mouth of the crater, measuring scalding pumice and toxic gas. St Helens had caught them by surprise, but now they are collecting new evidence from a mountain that could go on erupting for 20 years.

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.
