: Ours to Keep

Six films about people determined to save historic buildings. Millstones
The Calder Valley in West Yorkshire is scattered with 19th-century textile mills -vast, magnificent, and mostly redundant.
'People take trips to Egypt to see the pyramids, to Greece to see temples, physical remains of great cultural leaps forward in the history of mankind. The greatest leap that's ever been taken by mankind was the Industrial Revolution.
Where did it begin? It began here in the north of England. The pyramids were once quarried for their stone, the temples in Greece were demolished. The mills of the Pennines are suffering a similar fate today. We hope to stop it.'

: Forty Minutes: The Eternal Triangle: The Wife

A documentary trilogy that examines a central sexual dilemma from the viewpoint of the mistress, the wife and the husband.
'When the honeymoon was over, I really began to think to myself, "Hello, I'm not sure about this".'
'I always thought of marriage as two people locking themselves up in a cage.'
'I would call it the "Infernal Triangle", because it causes such hell for everybody.'
Three wives talk honestly about husbands, lovers and mistresses. The first still feels the pain of abandonment by her husband for his mistress.
The second has been happily married for 30 years. Both she and her husband have condoned each other's infidelities. The third walked away from her husband and three children for her lover. The second film in this trilogy illustrates, from the viewpoint of the wife, the agonising choices two people must make, if they are to abide by the promises they made to each other at the altar.

'I want tough incisive interviews. So does TopC.A.T.'
Behind every great TV news story there's a reporter; behind every reporter, there's a film crew and back at the production office there's a producer - worrying. It should all work like a well-oiled machine, but on Newstime it seldom does.

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.
