: Robert Graves 1895-1985

Robert Graves died in December 1985 at the age of 90. Scholar, soldier and immensely popular historical novelist, he was chiefly known for his lifelong dedication to the craft of poetry and to his own personal muse in his classic study The White Goddess. On his grave in Deya, Majorca where he lived since 1929, is the simple inscription 'Poet'. Tonight, Bookmark pays tribute to the writer of some of the most remarkable love poems in the language.

: Horizon: Genesis

A mouse with four parents? The horse that gave birth to a zebra? Perfect human babies that started life in the deep freeze?

"Horizon" tours the bizarre and fascinating world of embryology, now unravelling the mysteries of nature: how she builds her beautiful and intricate creatures, from simple insects to humans.

In the first eight weeks after conception - even before some women know they are pregnant - a human embryo develops from just one cell into a creature with arms, legs, eyes, ears and internal organs. Even though it's still smaller than a finger nail, the most important decisions of life have already been made.

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.
