: The Great Rebuilding

The style and standard of domestic building changed enormously between 1550 and 1660. King's Lynn in Norfolk provides a good example at which to look for the economic and social reasons behind the change. Towns were also growing bigger at this time and London is the example here for urban change.

: Brass Tacks Reports

Rough Trade
In the days of the Onedin Line unscrupulous shipowners would send unfit ships to sea in the hope that vessels, lives and cargo would be lost ... and that only the insurance money would come back. Today, in the late 20th century, the ' coffin ships ' are back on the high seas or under them. Against a background of world recession and massive over-capacity, even honest owners are being forced into the newer, less stringent ' flags of convenience '. Standards of safety and of crewing are falling, and putting a ship on to the rocks can be the means of keeping a floundering business afloat.
Eric Robson reports on those who knowingly send unfit vessels to sea, on near-criminal negligence that endangers life, property and the environment, and on the dramatic growth in maritime crime.

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.
