Innocents at Risk
The idea of abusing your own children, or even killing them, is beyond most parents' comprehension. But for loving parents to be falsely accused - and lose their children - must be the ultimate nightmare.
'She was screaming and I was desperate to explain what had happened but they wouldn't believe me.' Members of PAIN, Parents Against
INjustice, use examples from their own harrowing experiences to demand improvements in a system which both failed to save Jasmine Beckford and sometimes destroys innocent families.

: Horizon

In the Wake of HMS Sheffield On 4 May 1982 an Exocet missile smashed its way into HMS Sheffield. Twenty-one men died. Such real warfare is the only way the military can find out just how well their technology and tactics work. And lessons are learned: four weeks later HMS Avenger fought off a similar attack. For the first time on television, Argentine pilots describe how they set about such attacks. British captains tell how they fought to stave off the missiles and bombs, and what it taught them. Will their new strategies and weapons be a match for the supersonic missiles being made to replace Exocet?

: Maestro

Colin Cowdrey
'The cover-drive is the most beautiful stroke in batsmanship.'
To introduce
Colin Cowdrey demonstrating his favourite shot was to sense the effortlessness, the impeccable timing, and the power of a truly maestro cricketer. He played for
England 114 times, scoring more than seven and a half thousand runs.
As a captain there were criticisms of his ability to motivate the England team, though he did lead Kent for 15 years, and they won both the County Championship and the Gillette Cup in that time. Barry Davies talks to
Cowdrey on the cricket field at Tonbridge School and in the school house where he spent his formative years. Film cameraman DAVID HUTCHINS Film editor DAVE GOOD Producer JEFF GODDARD

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.
