The history programme that brings the past up to date, introduced by John Tusa.
In this edition How do you Democratise a Nazi? On the 50th anniversary of Hitler's elevation to the chancellorship of the Third Reich Simon Winchester reports from Washington and Nuremberg on how America in 1945 tried to remake a nation in its own image through a process of forced re-education.
The Venerable Bede-Britain's first historian. Who was he? Where and how did he live? Why is he so important? The story of a remarkable man who, over a thousand years ago, could have travelled from Northumbria to Rome.
And The Levellers - three months ago in Putney church Michael Foot and other members of the Labour Party associated themselves with the men of the ' New Model Army' who spoke there 300 years before. Who were these men who, in their radicalism, saw Cromwell as the modern equivalent of establishment and right wing? How does the philosophy of these Levellers find echoes in the Labour Party today?

: Only Time Would Tell

The third of six programmes Harold Williamson revisits The Survivors of Salford
Rain seeped through the roofs; there were holes in the ceilings, no flushing lavatories, no hot water. And damp was everywhere. That was in 1974, when Salford Council, failing to make repairs, told Its tenants in Lower Broughton that they would be re-housed, but not for at least four years.
The tenants went to law. Their action reached the House of Lords, which ordered repairs. The Council pulled the houses down. The tenants were rehoused.
Today, eight years later, Harold Williamson finds that the new housing has brought new problems. They are problems familiar to almost all communities which have been uprooted from their old, familiar neighbourhood ...

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
