: Horizon

From the BAFTA Best
Factual Series of 1971 a classic and visually exciting study of a supernova 'death star'.
The Crab Nebula
'The history of the Crab more closely resembles a tale of mystery and imagination than a sober scientific recital.'
When a leading physicist said this in 1961 even he could not have forecast the next ten years' twists and turns in the plot of this vintage detective story.
On a world-wide stage a series of astonishing discoveries about a single object in the sky reflect the whole of modern astronomy. The investigation begins in 1054 when Chinese astronomers recorded the cataclysmic destruction of a star the remains of which are now the Crab. It ends with a question: is this the death that makes all life possible? Narrator Paul Vaughan

: Edna the Inebriate Woman

by JEREMY SANDFORD
This award-winning play is an outstanding example of the BBC's long tradition of presenting powerful plays based on national problems and the social ills of society. Patricia Hayes 's memorable performance as a loveable female vagrant won her the year's top Television Drama Award.
I found this the most moving 'Play for Today' yet, all the more truthful for being so well laced with comedy. It did honour to everybody involved.

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.
