Where the public sets the agenda.
The Dividing Line
The fighting on the streets in Newham, in London's East
End, is not just among young gangs. Old people and young children are attacked simply because they are black. Some have died, and many have been injured. The Newham Monitoring Project argues that police, schools and local authorities have not done enough. So black people have taken to defending themselves.

: Horizon

The Mould, the Myth and the Microbe
In May 1940, in a blacked-out laboratory, four white mice were rescued from certain death by a substance derived from 'mould juice'. Four years later, 40,000 D-Day casualties were treated with it. Penicillin was a miracle - harmless to people yet lethal to microbes.
A romantic myth has clouded the true story of the development of medicine's first antibiotic. Sir Alexander Fleming became a world hero, often wrongly credited for work he did not do.
Professor Gwyn Macfarlane , FRS, has carefully researched the full story. He concludes that the time has come to extend well-deserved recognition to the men who really brought penicillin to the world.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
