: Lifeboat: Spurn Point

Home for the Humber Lifeboat crew, as it has been for 150 years, is Spurn Point. At the tip of the point, past the lighthouse, at the end of a four-mile road, stand the houses of the lifeboat crew.
Spurn's position makes it especially vulnerable to the winds and tides of the North Sea. Five times in its history it has been washed away. Written and narrated by Brian Thompson.

: Horizon: Careering On

What do a 'kissogram' girl, a trainee Royal Naval Officer, a woman engineer, two PhD chemists and a Sikh student of homoeopathy have in common? Answer: seven years ago, as teenagers doing O-levels in science, they were all filmed by "Horizon" as they travelled round Britain to explore possible future careers.

Now "Horizon" has retraced these six very different people and filmed them again to see whether their hopes of a career in science have been realised. How have their ideas and impressions changed since 1978 - and what have been the biggest influences on their lives and work now they have come of age?

: Arena

How Glorious is the Garden? Tonight Arena and Newsnight join forces to mount a major studio debate between the embattled factions of the arts world. 'The Glory of the Garden' was the Arts Council's blueprint for a redistribution of its grants favouring regional centres over
London. Now a head-long battle has developed between those administering funds and those who are the beneficiaries.... or the losers. The National Theatre has threatened 100 redundancies, and the Cottesloe could go dark in April. The English National Opera sees its programme in jeopardy. The Council's Literature
Department narrowly escaped the axe, and half of the drama panel have resigned. In this atmosphere of open warfare, how can the garden grow? Will judicial pruning turn into total devastation? Has the Arts Council, in the words of its critics, 'betrayed the arts and lent itself to party politics' or have just and sensible policies become the target for partisan hysteria? Tonight the council confronts its critics. Introduced by John Tusa and Joan Bakewell.

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.
