: The Ultimate Explorer

John Young is a middle-aged American you wouldn't look at twice - average height, average build, a face you'd forget an hour later. But he has been rocketed into space five times, visited the moon twice and was Commander of the first Space Shuttle. Now the Chief Astronaut at NASA, he is the only man both to walk on the moon and to fly the Shuttle.
But for all this JOHN YOUNG remains, by his own choice, unknown to most people both here and in the States. Now, this media-shy ' reluctant hero' has agreed to talk about himself and his work.
In a few days, he is scheduled for another first in space when he takes the European Space Laboratory into orbit. Reporter Michal Dean

: Bunuel

The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie starring Fernando Rey
Delphinc Seyrlg , Stephane Audran Six characters keep meeting for dinner but somehow they never get to the end of the meal. A corpse is discovered, the army arrives on manoeuvres, rows break out - it is always the wrong time or the wrong place.
Luis Bunuel 's savagely witty attack on middle-class mores and rituals was a huge success, especially with the society it so furiously lampoons.

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.
