The Orange World of Titan
Titan, Saturn's largest moon, is one of the most remarkable bodies in the Solar System.
With its dense orange clouds and its nitrogen atmosphere, it may have a deep ocean made up of methane, with cliffs of solid methane and a steady drip of methane rain.
Patrick Moore talks about this extraordinary 'Earth in deep freeze'.

Producer: Pieter Morpurgo

: Postscript: J. B. Priestley Remembered

Robert Robinson recalls the great Englishman of letters who died last month.
Priestley, born in Bradford in 1894, remained throughout his life the straightforward
Yorkshireman, scourge of the literary establishment and champion of the common man. In the war, his Postscripts on the BBC caught the imagination of the nation. His output was prodigious: 33 novels, 38 plays and hundreds of essays. He said unassumingly of himself: 'I don't have any genius but a hell of a lot of talent'. With Angus Wilson, Malcolm Muggeridge, Michael Foot, Beryl Bainbridge, Malcolm Bradbury and his widow Jacquetta Hawkes.

: * Derek Bourgeois - Composer

A film portrait of Derek Bourgeois who has taken over as musical director of the National Youth Orchestra.
From the peaceful solitude of his home in the Wye Valley, he writes music that defies fashion. Not for him the tuneless discord favoured by many of his contemporaries: he prefers melody and rhythm. Photography DAVID SAUNDERS

The happy - if humdrum - marriage of Francin and Marja is shaken into life by the arrival of Francin's brother Pepin, a loud-mouthed live wire who wreaks havoc wherever he goes. To the sensitive Francin, Pepin's idiocies are a torment: to Marja he's a new lease of life.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
