: Tangmere

... Requiem for an Airfield Tangmere was one of the oldest and most famous stations in the RAF. Now it is derelict. The weed-infested runway and the abandoned control tower hold nothing but memories of pilots and airmen and women, whose finest hour came during the Battle of Britain. Should time erase all traces of the airfield, the graves in Tangmere churchyard will forever remind us of the place
Tangmere had in the history of the RAF. Some of those who served there remember. Film editor BARRIE JOHNSTON Producer JOHN COLEMAN

: Horizon

The Goddess of the Earth
At this moment the plants in your garden are producing a gas which could set the planet on fire. Luckily, it won't happen - partly because of ancient bacteria in our guts! This idea forms part of a startlingly controversial theory put forward by Dr James Lovelock to explain how life on earth has survived for three-and-a-half billion years. He argues that life itself actively manipulates the planet, ensuring that the oceans don't boil or freeze and that the atmosphere remains breathable.
His name for this self-regulating system is Gaia - the ancient Greek goddess of the Earth.

with John Pitman Tower of London
The Japanese are quiet, the French a bit messy. The Germans are clean and friendly. And the English? 'Arrogant, pushy and wanting all the attention', says Sandy O'Cunneff who runs the ladies' loo at the Tower. The programme joins the 12,000 tourists 'doing' the Tower - Beefeaters tell spine-chilling stories of blood and guts, a child is lost in all the chaos and there is a break-in in the Jewel House.

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.
