: O'Donnell Investigates ... Food

The first of four programmes The Food Legacy
Typical British food is a major cause of illness say the latest official reports. From heart disease and cancer to gallstones and adult diabetes, the modern plagues are being blamed on the food we eat. Why should we believe the experts are right about these links between food and disease? Are we putting
Machine Age food into Stone Age bodies?
Dr Michael O'Donnell investigates the food of hunter-gatherer tribes, samples the food of an African village and goes to southern Italy.

: Duel with An Teallach

A true story based on the diary of lain Ogilvie.
On 17 April 1966, three men set out to climb An Teallach, 'the forge', a massive sandstone ridge in the north west of Scotland. Two were experienced, but the third was a novice, and the mountain lay under a thick blanket of snow and ice. At three o'clock Ogilvie's two friends slipped down a 700-foot gulley. What followed was a solo rescue effort of remarkable skill and bravery.

: Introducing 'The Triumph of the West'

John Roberts , until recently the Vice-Chancellor of Southampton University, is a historian and the author of a highly successful History of the World, the first since that of H. G. Wells. Now he has made a 13-part television series which starts on BBC2 next Monday. It's called by a challenging title, The
Triumph of the West, and it tells the story of the impact that one civilisation, Western civilisation, made on the rest of the world. But what is the West ? What are its limits? Tonight Dr Roberts talks about the series and what he means by that 'Triumph'.
'... a triumph at a time when the West had lost confidence in itself.'

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.
