: White Horses

From the Camargue to Cornwall
This week Robin and Louella Hanbury-Tenison continue their ride home from the south of France to Bodmin Moor. Tiki and Thibert, their two beautiful Camargue horses, have now travelled over 500 miles and they are about half way. Time for a rest at a rather special house belonging to Louella's cousin. There's a field with rich grazing for the horses, and a huge four-poster bed for their riders!

: King at Hammersmith Odeon

The first of three special concerts features King - their history traced in a special film; interviewed cutting the new album in Hastings; and performing live during the last night of their knock-out British tour.
The press said it was a must - Paul King at his outrageous best. It may have been an understatement.
Presented by Peter Powell and recorded with multitrack sound, it was, said the critics, 'one of the best concerts of the year.'

: Q.E.D.

The Quest for Mastermind's Brain with Anthony Clare
Magnus Magnusson stumps International Mastermind
Chris Hughes by asking him what his brain looks like, split down the middle.
Mastermind doesn't like questions he can't answer but is this one too dangerous? Consider the problem. The brain is soft tissue completely encased in a bony skull. Any beams capable of penetrating all that bone, X-rays for example, tend to shoot straight through the brain without seeing it. Finding the answer to Magnus' question takes Chris from computerised brainwaves to the discovery of Pluto and a spell inside the most extraordinary magnet in the world.

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.
