: The Story of English

Presented in nine parts by Robert MacNeil
Written by ROBERT MCCRUM
The Story of English is about the greatest adventure in language the world has ever known. Used by one billion, familiar to a further billion - a staggering two-fifths of mankind - it has now become the world's first global language.
1: An English-Speaking World This introductory programme explores the astonishing range of English today: on the playing fields of English public schools, in the presidential palace in Sierra Leone, in the memoranda of an Italian multinational, outside the law courts of Delhi, on the lips of 250 million Chinese.
From the high-tech future of California, to the economic dynamism of the New Pacific, to the edge of outer space itself, English is introduced as the success story of the 20th century, a language without frontiers.

: Famous Last Words

How will people refer to you after your death? Would you, perhaps, rather not know? In this four-part series Peter France faces contributors with their obituaries and gives them the unique opportunity to respond. In the second programme, former Prime Minister Lord Home views his 'obituary' at his mansion, the Hirsel, on the Scottish borders and responds to it in conversation with Peter France. Does he now regret his support for Neville Chamberlain 's appeasement policy of the 1930s? Does he accept that, as a hereditary peer, he was ill-equipped for democratic politics in the second half of the 20th century?

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.
