: Blue Peter

with Simon Groom, Janet Ellis and Michael Sundin
The Lamberts of Croydon
One hundred and sixty years ago, two boys and a small girl riding on a donkey were painted by the famous artist John Constable.
'They are very well-behaved and amiable children, and the donkey is a fine, rough, good-natured animal' he wrote to his wife.
Today may be your last chance to see this painting - when this great family treasure is auctioned at Sotheby's next week, it could well leave the country forever.

: Ours to Keep

Six films about people determined to defend historic buildings against the destructive effects of social change and market forces.
Huguenots, Jews, Irish,
Maltese, Bengalis -for 250 years the streets of Spitalfields, next door to the City of London, have
Provided a haven for a succession of refugee and immigrant communities.
Intense overcrowding gave the district a reputation as one of the worst slums in the East End, and its splendid Georgian houses succumbed to decay.
The latest wave of incomers are artists, historians, architects - enthusiasts bent on transforming the derelict houses into highly desirable residences.
'The houses of Spitalfields are a collection of atmospheres like shipwrecks; it is very eerie sometimes but that is what makes them so special. This is a land for the peculiar and we are not going to offend anybody by being ourselves.'

: Forty Minutes

The Eternal Triangle
A documentary trilogy that examines a central sexual dilemma from the viewpoint of the mistress, the wife and the husband. The Mistress
Three mistresses talk frankly, ruefully and often wittily about their long-term liaisons with married men. The first openly shares her man with his legal wife. The life of the second is a lonely vigil redeemed only by rare and brief encounters. The third was pampered until she became pregnant, after which she became less a mistress and more the mother of a secret family.
The second showing of this film illustrates the first angle of the eternal triangle - the loneliness, secrecy, betrayal and abandonment that often go hand in hand with being a mistress. In the following two weeks it will be the wife and the husband who talk candidly about their love lives.

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.
