Five personal accounts of recent changes in scientific ideas.
1: Serpent in the Garden of Eden Wally Gilbert , Nobel Laureate 1980 Inside every cell in your body there are six feet of intricately coiled and packed material called DNA. Strung out along the length of the DNA is a message which, when decoded, specifies the instructions for making a human being.
WALLY GILBERT of Harvard University has for 20 years been engaged in the process of deciphering the message in DNA. His achievements throw light on the nature of evolution and show the way that we may be able to escape the tyrannies of inheritance; they have also earned him a Nobel Prize and brought him the chairmanship of a multi-million-dollar genetic engineering company.

The Victims
Kidnapping and hostage-taking continue to hit the headlines. When a successful rescue is effected, there's a flurry in the press and then the storm is forgotten-but for the victims their ordeal doesn't finish with their release. Later in their lives the memory of their experiences can affect them, often causing great mental distress. This condition is known as concentration camp, or KZ syndrome.
In this film people who have suffered imprisonment - hostages, prisoners of war and survivors of the concentration camps - talk about their experiences during and after capture, and reveal the long-lasting effects which are only now being recognised and treated. Narrator Ian Holm

Miss Constantine

Little Miss Constantine lives in a vast, rambling mansion, her thoughts crowded with remnants of a half-forgotten family history. A tolerable eccentricity -that is until the darker shadows of the shuttered rooms are occupied by ' the people from the authorities'.

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.
