Young people making things happen 5: The Performers
There's no business like show business - even in 1984. At least that's the opinion of Dancing with the Dog an a cappella group who perform on the streets of London Craig McKnight who exchanged a career in computers for a pair of dancing shoes, and Gloria Hamilton who writes plays and runs a theatre company.

: Brass Tacks

Judge thy Neighbour
TV cameras are not allowed in British courts. But in this Brass Tacks, three cases have been re-created by those involved. Solicitors, court staff, magistrates, even the defendants themselves, went from the courtroom in Stockport to the studio to relive the proceedings exactly as they had happened.
Their cases raise serious questions about the justice of our criminal courts. Representatives of the legal establishment are called to the court-house to answer Geoffrey Robert son's question: do magistrates courts dispense what Magna Charta called 'judgment by our peers'?

: A Passion to Protect

'The real likelihood of the legend of Little Red Riding Hood is that the grandmother ate the wolf and used its skin as a bed rug.'
Two obsessions have dominated John Aspinall 's life-gambling, and a love of wild animals. In 1956 a considerable win at the Cesarewitch enabled him to buy Howletts, a country estate that he has turned in to a unique zoo - a zoo where emotional bonding between keepers and animals is deliberately fostered.

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.
