: Common Sense

A series of six lectures by Professor Colin Blakemore 2: The Sound of Silence
The photosensitive rods in the retina of the eye are so sensitive that they can generate a signal when they catch a single quantum, the smallest unit of light possible. The sun is 10,000 million million times brighter. But our eyes can operate satisfactorily over that enormous range although our senses are passed to the brain over low-quality wires, our nerve fibres.

: Joyce in June

by STEWART PARKER
On 16 June 1904 James Joyce met Nora Barnacle , the love of his life, and immortalised that day in his famous novel Ulysses. So what might the author and his characters have been up to in the week after the 16th? This disrespectful musical comedy celebrates the centenary of James Joyce 's birth.

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.
