Wink of an Eye
For all the crises faced by the Enterprise, Captain Kirk has never moved so quickly - nor Spock more sluggishly - than when a mysterious hum pervades the ship.

: River Journeys

A series in six parts 2:The Nile
Brian Thompson sits in a wind-blown tent in Juba, deep in the heart of Sudan. A local magician predicts a journey by boat. Outside his front door runs the longest river in the world - the Nile. His journey takes him across the eerie emptiness of the Sudd - a quarter of a million square miles of floating swamp.
From the simple cabins of the mail packet Kerbekan to the comfort and antics of a fancy dress party on board a luxurious floating hotel. By bus across a seemingly infinite desert to the splendour of Luxor and Karnak where once the streets were paved with gold. Written and presented by BRIAN THOMPSON

: Championship Darts

The Unipart British
Professional Championship If the seeding system is correct, the cream of the darts world will be in action tonight in the last three quarter-finals. The first match should feature the 'canny' character JOCKY WILSON (No 5 seed), twice winner of this championship and No 4 seed BOB ANDERSON , racing up the rankings after winning this year's Danish and Swedish Opens. It promises to be a cracker, providing they both succeed in the previous two rounds. Remember, the best of nine sets, three legs per set.

: Brass Tacks

Education is back at the top of the political agenda - and that's because it's in a mess. Parents are worried about unemployment; employers say the school leavers don't have what it takes. The
Government is responding by giving parents more power and by introducing a national programme of technical and vocational teaching. But critics say such measures don't add up to a policy. What's needed is a national strategy for state secondary education to replace the piecemeal remedies and underfunded initiatives.

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.

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