The Fire and the Faith
In the early hours of 9 July last year a fierce fire took hold in the roof of the south transept of York Minster.
Although the great cathedral was saved from total destruction, the damage was immense. But that same morning clergy, officials and craftsmen started work amid the wreckage.... their faith in the Minster's complete restoration never in doubt. Picture editor EDWARD CROOT Producer JOHN IRWIN

: Nature

A weekly look at wildlife with Tony Soper and Brian Leith Cliffhanger: gannets use discarded fishing-lines to build up their nests, but this can cause death to fledglings. Now coastguards are coming to the rescue.
Killing the Cat: over 90 per cent of the skins supplying the fur trade come from ranched animals. But every year, more than 100,000 wild animals are also killed to satisfy demand. Laws have come late to protect rare animals, particularly the cats, and are difficult to enforce. Will fashions change in time to save them? Producer ROBIN HELLIER Editor ANDREW NEAL BBC Bristol

with Geoff Hamilton in Auckland
Carving a garden out of the bush is a challenging task. Hugh and Mary Redgrove came out from Kent nearly 40 years ago and did just that, creating a magic oasis for plants from all over the world. Hugh Redgrove thinks that many of them, especially native New

: Just Another Day

with John Pitman
Eight films which go behind the scenes of places which are part of the British way of life.
1: The Hospital for Sick Children
The motto of GOSH-London's Great Ormond Street Hospital -is 'Children First and Always'.
Nearly all the children referred here are seriously ill. There is an underlying feeling of tension, but overall it's a happy place. A place for hope. Sunjeev is recovering from an operation. He thinks it's his 19th. Claire, who is 11, has just had a blockage removed. 'Now I'll be able to grow,' she says. 'It'll cost my mum a lot of money in new clothes.'
Upstairs there's a party for Andrew who is one today; downstairs there's a party for Princess Michael of Kent who is opening a new ward this afternoon. As night draws in, the children are tucked up. Mothers sit with them until they fall asleep. Doctors start to go home.
'But you can't just disappear and forget,' says consultant surgeon Edward Kiely. 'At least, I can't.'

: The New Pacific

6: For Richer, For Poorer In the South Pacific kingdom of Tonga, the daughter of a baron is to marry a prince, and villagers converge on the palace with gifts of tapa cloth and dancing. In Papua New Guinea, highland warriors daub their bodies with pig's fat and dress themselves in the finery of the jungle for an important stage in a wedding which will last six months. In Tokyo, a bride's father pays E30,000 for gifts for his guests at a wedding breakfast, though the cake is made of plastic.
In each case it is an arranged marriage, and the young couple are caught up in the ritual exchange of goods and money over which they themselves have little control. Narrated by Peter France

The first of a two-part screen adaptation of BROOKE HAYWARD 'S best-selling memoirs
'My mother was a star, Margaret Sullavan , a shining idol of her generation. My father was
Leland Hayward , a producer, agent, a rich, glamorous legend himself. They were happily married for ten years, had three children in even succession.... This is a story of carelessness and guilt; of people who have lived at extremes. My parents failed as they succeeded - on a massive scale. They left behind them a legacy, vested on their children, that only two of us survived.'

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.
