: Horizon: A Killer in the Village - Update

An updated report on AIDS, a catastrophic collapse of the immune system that leads to a bizarre range of cancers and potentially fatal infections.

A year ago "Horizon" showed the painstaking medical detective work that established the main ways in which AIDS is transmitted among homosexual men and heroin addicts, and also through some blood products.

Since then the number of victims has tripled from 1,300 to some 4,000 men, women and babies, with over 1,500 dead.

: A Fight to Remember

The last of a selection of the best in British boxing over the past two decades.
Written and narrated by Harry Carpenter
In action: Tony Sibson , Colin Jones and Jim Watt
If a great fight is one that sticks in the memory, then the fights featured tonight must surely deserve that accolade. From time immemorial if the crowd thought the fighters had given above and beyond their expectations they threw money into the ring at the end of the fight. All the fighters in this final programme rightly deserved 'the nobbins'.

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.
