: The Great Egg Race

How do you put the last brick on an igloo? Do you have to go to the Arctic to find suitable snow? If you finish, how warm is it inside? For this unusual programme, nine southerners are taken north and dumped on the side of a desolate, snow-covered mountain in Scotland with only the reindeer for company. There they have to make themselves at home. After a few hours they know all the answers.

: The World About Us

Salmon - In a Sea of Troubles The salmon that leap the waterfalls each year as they ascend Scotland's rivers to spawn signal that all is well in the world about us Like the grouse, they are part of Scotland's heritage and the anglers who come in pursuit of the king of fish are an important part of Scotland's economy. Since 1976 there has been a disturbing decline in the numbers of salmon returning from the ocean to breed. This film follows the salmon on its life's journey through a sea of troubles in search of who or what has caused this decline. Is it the Greenland eskimos, the Faeroe Islanders,
Northumbrian drift-netters, seals or poachers who are to blame? Could it be the traditional netsmen on the Scottish coast, or even the anglers themselves? Or is there something wrong with Scotland's rivers?

: The Haunted Heroes

A World About Us special
Ten years ago this week the last Americans left Saigon. More than two-and-a-half million Americans served in Vietnam. They risked their lives and then returned to a country that rejected them. Bitter and angry some have survived by running away from society and living in the wilderness. Today, there are still hundreds of these veterans hiding in remote forests and mountains of North America. Their memories of what they have been trained to do to fellow human beings and the horrors they have witnessed make it impossible for them to live in normal society. For them Vietnam is an unfinished business. They fear the violence in themselves.
In any other war Steve,
Bruce, Jake and Fred, all veterans of Vietnam, would have been heroes. This documentary shows them living in self-imposed exile, outcasts in their own country.

: Film: Theatre of Blood

starring Vincent Price
Someone is killing the leading theatre critics of London in a peculiarly hideous way. Each death bizarrely parodies a death in a different Shakespeare play. The police are baffled. Surely the only person with a grudge of such magnitude is ham Shakespearian actor Edward Lionheart, and he committed suicide years ago....

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.
