: Open Space

Where the public set the agenda The Need to Know
In the event of a nuclear attack on this country, the government will put into operation emergency civil defence plans. Many doctors, nurses and health workers involved believe them to be futile. The plans, they say, are an act of deception against the people of this country.
Tonight the Medical Campaign Against Nuclear Weapons explains what the public need to know to decide for themselves what our response to the threat of nuclear war should be.
Made by the MEDICAL CAMPAIGN AGAINST NUCLEAR WEAPONS with the help of the COMMUNITY PROGRAMME UNIT

: Seal Hunters of the Arctic

The first in a series of Global Report
"I don't like those people who are trying to stop us hunting seals, although I don't mind them trying to stop the clubbing. It angers me that we have been affected by the clubbing, although we don't support it." Victor Akatsiak is an Eskimo hunter in the Canadian Arctic. This film follows him and his family on the annual spring hunt of seal and caribou, where children are taught traditional skills needed to live on the land. It's a way of life that has changed very little for thousands of years, but now the Eskimos feel threatened by southern interference. Ian Creery reports on how they are fighting back.

: The Great Palace:The Story of Parliament: Royal Westminster

The first of eight programmes looking behind the doors of Westminster and Parliament. Narrated by Anthony Quayle
For more than a thousand years Westminster has been a Royal Palace. Kings called their first Parliaments there in the 13th century when they needed to raise money. Since then our Parliamentary system has developed against a colourful history of arrogant kings and a wilful Parliament. King Charles I was condemned to death at Westminster, and Guy Fawkes met his agonising death within the walls of the Palace which he had tried to blow up. When Queen Elizabeth comes to open her Parliament the preparations are impeccable and the ceremony unchanged since Queen Victoria's reign. For the first time, cameras have been allowed inside the Palace to tell the story of one of the most extraordinary buildings in the world.

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.
