: The Big Meeting

A Celebration of the Durham Miners' Gala
Today on the race course in Durham, The Rt Hon Michael Foot , mp, and The Rt Hon Tony Benn were among the speakers at the 100th Durham Miners' Gala. With their help, as well as by listening to the stories of many Durham pitmen and their wives, the playwright Alan Plater celebrates a century of this famous working-class occasion.
It is an event which has been discovered in the past 50 years by painters, photographers and film-makers and their record of The Big Meeting, together with that of the anonymous creators of the Lodge Banners, provides a unique commentary on the changing fortunes and aspirations of Britain's mining community.

: The Levin Interviews

Bernard Levin in conversation with Sir Peter Medawar
' A scientist must be freely imaginative and yet sceptical, creative and yet a critic ... There is poetry in science, but also a lot of book-keeping.'
So says scientist SIR PETER MEDA WAR, Nobel Prize-winner for his research in immunology. His discoveries have led to skingrafting and organ transplants both becoming commonplace types of treatment. For this and other work he has been knighted, awarded the Order of Merit and Companion of Honour, but he is far more than scientist alone. Something of a Renaissance man, he has written on many subjects of wide appeal, most recently in his latest book, Pluto's Republic.
Researcher BETKA ZAMOYSKA Producer CHRIS HUNT BBC Bristol
This interview will be published in THE USTENER dated 21 July

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.
