Vox Box
Far away from the 'studio experts' and television
'pundits', Vox Box is the sort of exercise that makes TV moguls nervous - asking viewers what they think about the box.
Open Space builds a 'public studio' and puts it right in the middle of Europe's largest shopping centre -
Newcastle's Eldon Square, inviting passers-by to get involved in talking with each other about television.
Getting things going are
Robbie Vincent , Liz Kershaw and Fletcher Richardson. Watch and find out what happens.

: Horizon

The Wrong Stuff
The cool, combative, macho style of the military pilot has been dubbed, in book and film, 'The Right Stuff. But when that behaviour ends up in a commercial cockpit it's a positive menace to safety - it's 'The Wrong Stuff!
Despite the tragic events of 1985, four out of five crashes are still caused by human error. Finding out what that means in terms of human behaviour has been called the last great frontier in aviation safety.
Horizon goes behind the closed door of the airline cockpit into a very private workplace to find out what goes wrong there and how to put it right.

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.
