: Under the Weather

with Jack Scott
A series of six programmes about the workings of our weather and why forecasting it is such a complicated business; whether we want to know if another ice age is imminent, or simply if we should take a raincoat to work. 1: Behind the Forecast
Preparations for a television weather forecast reveal that it is the end-product of a massive international system of observations and communications, processed in one of the world's largest computers - all relying on a broad general theory of how the atmosphere behaves.

: Brass Tacks

Presented by Eric Robson
If it Can Happen in Coventry ...
It was a normal, busy Saturday afternoon in Coventry's modern shopping precinct. Suddenly a gang of youths attacked a young man. One of them pulled a knife and their victim lay dying.
That young man was Asian. Three weeks later 10,000 Asian families marched through the streets to demand protection. A city which once prided itself on racial harmony was being told it could face a crisis as serious as Brixton. or Southall.
Brass Tacks examines the frightening evidence of racial attacks and talks to those who face the task of restoring peace among the city's mixed population.

Researcher GERALDINE MCCLELLAND Cameraman JOHN HOWARTH Editor COLIN ADAMS

: They're Playing My Tune

Four short films about music and memory.
A song, or a tune, made special because of the moment with which it's associated, becomes the personal property of the listener.
In the third programme of this series, Joan Williams from Bournemouth describes her special tune as one that she would dearly like to forget, because it reminds her all too vividly of the worst moment of her life. The scene, wherein the housemaid is caught in the act (of playing the parlour piano) is magically re-created, to lav JOAN WILLIAMS 'S 50-year-old ghost.

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.
