: Flower of the Month

with Geoffrey Smith Fuchsias
The rich colours of the fuchsia perfectly bridge the gap between summer and autumn, and it looks equally at home in large gardens or small. To achieve a profusion of flowers, Geoffrey Smith shows how to look after hardy fuchsias in the garden and how to take cuttings to fill hanging baskets, tubs and window boxes.

: Star Paws

A Forty Minutes documentary film.
Since the birth of advertising, animals have sold objects. A winsome wide-eyed puppy sitting by a phonograph sold gramophone records. A shaggy dog called Duke is immemorially associated with a brand of paint. Pretty cats lick their whiskers on our screens just long enough for advertisers to get their messages across.
This film looks at a cottage industry - at the homes and owners who supply and train animal celebrities for gala openings, for fetes, television and films.
Executive producer ROGER MILLS Producer JUDI CONNER (R)
One of the all-time great comic animal stories. (DAILY MIRROR) Cheerful documentary.... most rewarding. (DAILY MAIL)

: The Triumph of the West

A view of world history in 13 parts by JOHN ROBERTS 1: Dangerous Gifts
Western civilisation changed the world. It created the global civilisation we take for granted - the only worldwide civilisation there has ever been.
In tonight's programme historian John Roberts , until recently Vice-
Chancellor of Southampton University, examines the continuingimpact of the West. 'Everywhere life has been transformed by the dangerous gifts of the West.' He goes to China, where a 1 000 million Chinese are formally ruled in the name of a German intellectual - Karl Marx ; Japan, a capitalist, industrial superpower, and examines how superficial is the appearance of 'westernisation'; and India, where he sees western forces operating far stronger than anything left by its legacy of imperialism.
In the United Nations, where the cold-war 'West' is most frequently under attack, he sees, paradoxically, the presitige of western ideas and institutions.
'I believe that all the important master principles and myths at work in the world today derive from the West.'

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.
