The Trail Blazers
Films of early exploration introduced from the Royal
Geographical Society by the pioneer polar explorer, Duncan Carse Under the Sea by Photosphere (1914)
'Down came the divers leaving a trail of silvery bubbles and, before the window of our photosphere, under the eye of the clicking camera, they dived and swam. Soon we had shot the first motion pictures ever taken under the sea. I was filled with elation ..." The words of John Williamson , self-styled 'Originator of Undersea
Photography'. Williamson had lowered his specially-cast four-ton steel photosphere into the clear waters of the Bahamas. Here, despite many near-disasters, he successfully filmed the fish and the corals, the wrecks and the sharks.

: Jerry Lee Lewis

Jerry Lee Lewis doesn't sound like anybody else - the voice, the piano and the on-stage antics make an unforgettable combination. He plays and sings today exactly as he did when he made his first records in the 1950s. Since then he has kept his reputation for wildness, eccentricity and the ability to hold an audience spellbound. Arena captured him in concert and on top form. Producer ALAN YENTOB
Director ANTHONY WALL (R) (Postponed from 7 September)

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.
