: Flower of the Month

with Geoffrey Smith Lilies
Lilies must be the aristocrats of the summer garden - as Geoffrey Smith says, they are regal flowers. Care in planting, and protection from marauding slugs, ensure you can look forward to those glorious great trumpets which open in the summer.
And once they're established, there's an almost free way of increasing your stock - something no gardener can resist.

: Favourite Walks

A Dales Walk with Thomas Lawlor
The third of six British walks. Whenever he gets the chance, Thomas Lawlor escapes from a busy life on the opera stage to recharge his lungs in the air of the Yorkshire Dales. In Malhamdale his enjoyment stems not just from the dramatic scenery, but also from discovering how it was formed by the tricks nature plays in a landscape of limestone and water.

: Surviving

Five stories of struggle 1: Sister Sarah Clarke
Who are 'the least of these my brethren', in Jesus's phrase, in England today? For Sister Sarah Clarke , a Roman
Catholic nun, they include Irish prisoners and the families who still cherish them. Guilt by association, she says, affects the families when they come over for visits; working with them has taken her on to the margins of the Church and of society. How has she survived? Producer JENNY MORGAN

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.
