: Who's a Pretty Girl, Then?

A Forty Minutes documentary film
Among 19,000 photographs submitted by proud mothers and fathers throughout the British Isles is the picture of one little girl, between the age of three and nine, who is destined to win the coveted title 'Miss Pears'.
A panel of beauty experts will choose her on the basis of a photograph alone for her natural freshness, beauty and innocence. Hers will be the face that embodies the year's advertising campaign.
The finalists have spent two days in London while the judges are making up their minds. On the morning of the third day at Claridges, the little girl will be revealed whose success will delight her mummy and daddy, whose face will launch a thousand posters and whose natural photogenic potential will bring into her piggy bank a cheque for £1,000.

: Gardeners' World

from Sale, Manchester with Geoff Hamilton and Clay Jones Thelma Kay is an enthusiastic plantswoman travelling around the world collecting plants and growing them back home.
Her garden is now regularly open to the public, boasting a wide range of rare and interesting plants growing in a variety of conditions - alpine, peat and herbaceous beds together with a vegetable plot.
Yet this garden in the suburbs of Manchester is only 400 square yards, proving that even a typically small patch can, with skill and enthusiasm, become a plant paradise.

2: Waiting for Miracles
'It's always daunting to revisit one's own past in one's own words. Time is a terrible teacher. Either it gives you a little pat on the back or a terrific kick up the backside. I took the chance of doing both. I found it curious, and enlightening, the huge difference the last years had made to some things-and how little difference to others.' James Cameron goes from Berlin, Venice, Cyprus, Israel and Notting Hill, to an alcoholics' home in southern England.

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.
