To See or Not to See

: Do They Mean Us?

Our sense of humour baffles them, our politics bother them, our preoccupation with tradition bemuses them.
Apparently, we don't wash, and we are morose and miserable even on holiday. On the other hand, we are polite and kind to animals. Each week, Derek Jameson looks at the way foreign television reports this country. Tonight, in the final programme in the series, he looks at the bizarre hobbies of the British, from train spotting to dangerous sports. Research MARK ROGERS

: Queens': A Cambridge College

Getting In
The first in a new ten-part series
Petrified sixth-formers are put through their paces during nerve-racking interviews for admission to
Cambridge. The dons go through this process every year. For the candidates there's only one chance: careers and futures are in the balance.
The candidates:
The grammar-school boy: he seems to know more about his subject than his interviewers. Will this put them off?
The comprehensive-school girl: as the political argument gets more heated, the interviewers seem more and more impressed.
The public-school boy: as the questions get tougher his stammer gets worse. Will his questioners be sympathetic? Photography

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.
