: What Price Defence?

Newsweek looks at Britain's defence budget, now in danger of being overstretched between strategic commitments and the rapid escalation of weapons and equipment costs. There is economic stringency at home, while President Reagan is calling for higher spending on NATO.
Is it now time to consider radical solutions, like reducing the size of the Navy? How great a force should we keep in Germany? And how much do we really need to spend on the independent nuclear deterrent? David Jessel reports.

: Treasures of the Hermitage

The Rembrandt Collection Narrated by Marius Goring
The Hermitage Museum in Leningrad has the most spectacular collection of Rembrandts in the world, outside Amsterdam. Most of them were bought by Catherine the Great who, as she put it, ' got her claws into' the collection of an English Prime Minister, Sir Robert Walpole. There are no self-portraits, but every other phase of the artist's career is there, notably some of Rembrandt's greatest pictures inspired by the Bible - The Sacrifice of Isaac, David and Jonathan, The Prodigal Son.

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.
