: Stalemate?

ANATOLY KARPOV and GARY KASPAROV , two of the world's greatest chess champions, have played 48 games since September last year in the battle for the World Chess Championship in Moscow. With an unprecedented number of drawn games and the score at 5-3 in favour of reigning champion Karpov, the match was abruptly cancelled and a replay arranged for September. Jeremy James and Bill Hartston look at the events that have led to some of the stormiest scenes in the world of chess since the Fischer/Spassky match in Iceland in 1972, and which could lead to major changes in international tournaments.

: In Search of the Trojan War

written and presented by Michael Wood
Sensational finds in Turkey started the modern search for Homer's Troy. But could the new science of archaeology prove that the famous story was based on real events?
2: The Legend Under Siege As the ancient site at
Hissarlik continued to give up its secrets, a beautiful city was unearthed with fine towers and great ramparts. Were these the walls on which Helen had stood and watched the heroes die? The excavator
Wilhelm Dorpfeld was convinced he'd at last found the real Troy of legend. But in Crete, Sir Arthur Evans was about to make discoveries that would rewrite Aegean history. And where would that leave Homer?

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.
