: The Billion-Dollar Time Bomb

Out of Court Special
The fastest selling IUD contraceptive of the 70s is now misfiring on the makers. The Dalkon Shield - made in America, sold in Britain - is blamed by many women worldwide for distress, disease and even death. The company has always denied liability - but could the latest lawsuits now bankrupt a major multi-national?
Sue Cook and Ed Boyle reveal fresh allegations of cover-up and fraud, follow the new claims of a British woman for record damages and, for the first time, persuade the manufacturers, A. H. Robins , to defend themselves in public after a decade of silence.

: Gardeners' World

from Durham with Geoff Hamilton and Clay Jones
Just north of Darlington, Jill Kettlewell packs an enormous amount of gardening into a small space. She calls it 'The Wilderness', but it is far from that.
Vegetables, fruit, herbs, shrubs and flowers, most raised in a tiny greenhouse from seeds and cuttings, have all found a natural place in a garden that is well designed and full of ideas for anyone with a small garden.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
