Embassy World Professional Snooker Championship The Final
Why spend 15 days and nights and miss out on the big one? First to 18 is the winner, let's have a good clean fight, try to avoid the in-offs and keep the safety down to a minimum, bridge with the knuckle part of the hand and break when you're told to at 2.15, and may the best man win a million.
Rugby League

: The Money Programme

with Brian Widlake and Valerie Singleton The Real Thing
Counterfeit goods are big business - an estimated 60 billion dollars world-wide last year - and it's not just Gucci handbags and Cartier watches. The Money Programme has uncovered fake aircraft parts using sub-standard materials, counterfeit car engine components and exploding circuit-breakers. Companies can be reluctant to prosecute for fear of damaging publicity - and even if they do, the law can let the counterfeiters off the hook.

A look at wildlife with news, reports and comment on issues affecting the living world.

The largest structure built is under attack. As millions of predatory starfish feast on the Great Barrier Reef, biologists debate what action, if any, should be taken. Is the crown-of-thorns a real threat to this major tourist attraction?
Forty Winks

: Shadowlands

A second chance to see this BAFTA award-winning Everyman presentation (Best Single Drama and Best Actress) starring Joss Ackland and Claire Bloom
Shadowlands is the story of a passion that shattered and transformed the life of the writer C.S. Lewis.
One of the highlights of the television year (THE TIMES) A beautifully-made film, sensitive and aesthetic.... Inspiring (DAILY MAIL) Outstanding drama ... brilliantly played. (LONDON STANDARD) Profound, immensely poignant, with heart-wrenching performances.
There will be no justice if
Joss Ackland and Claire Bloom do not win acting awards for their performances.

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.
