On tour with Cliff in America!
Although a musical superstar around the globe. Ctiff Richard has been comparatively unknown in the United States since his last tour in 1960. Not surprisingly.

As Cliff himself says, 'after 21 years' practice we should be just about ready '.

: Horizon: A Race Against Time

British Rail have pinned their hopes on the Advanced Passenger Train. It's an excellent design with a great deal of new technology, from the hydraulic mechanism that tilts the coaches to new braking and suspension systems. Yet from the start the project has been hampered by delays, disputes and breakdowns. A small and youthful team of commissioning engineers was given the task of making the train work. Horizon joined them for a crucial week as the engineers raced against time to solve the train's problems by today. 7 December, when - if all goes well - the train will start the first 125 mph passenger service from London to Glasgow.

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.
