For Being There
'Imagine a country where you can be arrested for demonstrating against the government. Where you can be imprisoned for simply organising a demonstration. Where you can be arrested just for being there.'
According to CROWD (the Campaign for the Right of Assembly and Dissent), that country could soon be Britain with the introduction of the first Public Order Bill since 1936, which heralds tougher restrictions on assemblies, demonstrations and rallies. The government says it is only responding to growing public anxiety about disorder on the streets and hooliganism, but CROWD argues that this new legislation represents a major threat to civil liberties.

: Horizon

Science ... Fiction?
Once people looked to the Church to tell them about the world, now they look to science. Once everyone believed in heaven and hell, now most people believe in atoms and molecules, in stars and galaxies. But perhaps a time will come when these present theories are seen as superstitious myths; as the fictions of our time.
This programme tells a story which challenges beliefs people think unchallengeable. It is a story that calls into question the truths of the great project of knowledge now called science.

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.

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