The 113th Championship
Should TOM WATSON win again in Scotland today, can he please play for us in the Ryder Cup?

CLIVE CLARK , ALEX HAY , BRUCE CRITCHLEY and MARK MCCORMACK prefer it as it comes.
Athletics
The much-handled Olympic flame arrives in the Coliseum next Saturday, so getting this very special show on the road.
BRENDAN FOSTER , who's been there, seen it, done it, and DAVE MOORCROFT , who's going there hopefully to do it, produce their form guide for Los Angeles.

: The Natural World: Fragments of Eden

Islands which time passed by, the Seychelles appeared out of the mists of legend only 300 years ago. These tiny granite islands are fragments of a long-lost continent, and even today they retain an air of mystery and fable, for they are home to birds, trees and flowers that are found nowhere else on earth.
On a palm-fringed isle giant tortoises amble in the company of rare magpie robins.... and on another, black parrots, tiger chameleons and blue pigeons live in a forest so primeval that General Gordon of Khartoum believed he had found a lost Eden.

: The Levin Interviews

Bernard Levin in conversation with Sir John H. Plumb , who has been called 'one of the most enjoyable of living historians'. As well as the ever-popular England in the Eighteenth Century he has written two highly acclaimed volumes on Robert Walpole ; other important works include The Death of the Past, and the television series Royal Heritage.
Throughout, he has successfully combined scholarship and popular readability. He has, until recently, been Master of Christ's College at Cambridge, where before that he was Professor of Modern History.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
