: Six Fifty-five Special

Comedian, mimic, raconteur are three descriptions that can be applied at any one time to sum up the multi-faceted career of Michael Bentine. To the public he is best known for his zany humour but few people, apart from his family and friends, know him to be a spirit medium.
In tonight's programme MICHAEL BENTINE talks to host Donny MacLeod about the paranormal and a book, The Door Marked Summer, he has written on the subject.

: Brass Tacks

Presented by Eric Robson
Should a council
employee working just a few hours a week be faced with the decision of having to join a union or lose her job? And why does an MP speak out against the closed shop when he runs a company where jobs are reserved for union members only?
Brass Tacks looks at these questions in a week when the European Court is expected to judge whether the closed shop in this country violates human rights.
Editor COLIN ADAMS. BBC Manchester

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.
