Last of six programmes with Professor Colin Blakemore 6: The Enchanted Loom
The human brain with its 100,000 million nerve cells has a complexity and performance which, in nearly all respects, far exceeds the capacity of any computer. Such machines which have, it is true, good memories and the ability to perform prodigious feats of calculation, are actually simple-minded when it comes to interpreting visual images we can recognise at a glance. The brain is the most intricate, complex product of evolution: the Enchanted Loom as it has rightly been called.

: Once Upon a Time ... Is Now

In remembrance of Her Serene Highness
Princess Grace of Monaco
In 1977 documentary film maker Kevin Billington directed this sensitive, affectionate biography of Princess Grace. He could not have foreseen the now bitter irony of his opening-the famous car sequence from To Catch a Thief. Princess Grace talks about her life, her role as a wife and mother, and illuminates not only the well-known Hollywood days of stardom but also her early career as a model and as a television and stage performer.
Among the contributors are her husband Prince Rainier, James Stewart , Alfred Hitchcock , William Holden , Stanley Kramer and Raymond Massey.

: Inside Women's Magazines

A series of five programmes 1: Taking Shape
'Innocent, modest, instructive and agreeable', were the qualities expected of the readers of women's journals of the 18th century but, when Victoria became Queen, the magazines began to reflect a new narrow role for women -that of wife and mother, a recipe which became the standard formula for the successful mass circulation weeklies of the 1930s.

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.
