Only Fools and Sportsmen ...
An epidemic of drug abuse is destroying sport. The roots of the problem are so deeply embedded that current detection methods don't provide a real solution.
'It's cheating at its simplest.' 'I'm not worried about what is going to happen to me in 20 years time because I've taken steroids.' 'It's heading towards total biochemical manipulation of sportsmen.' Does anyone who hasn't used drugs stand a chance of winning at the Olympics this summer? Can the problem be solved or have the authorities left it too late?

: Sailor

The last of the series Eight Years On
Ark Royal has gone. Her demise marks the end of an era, for never again will the Navy's fixed-wing flyers face the rigours of the catapult launch. But what of the men who served with her, living and working candidly on camera? TOM WILKINSON - paternal Master at Arms; L/STEWARD CONWAY - married in Florida, and the irrepressible puppet 'Wilf' are among those who have left the Navy but whose memories confirm the indefatigable spirit of the British sailor.

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.
