: Men Who Came Back

In a famous poem of 1914, Thomas Hardy, witnessing the great mobilisation of that fateful year, wrote movingly of 'men who march away', to all the uncertainties and dubious glories of war. This programme is about 'men who came back'. Twenty-one former soldiers from five nations - Britain, America, Australia, Germany and Israel - describe their experiences in as many major wars.

A Medieval Affair
The Domesday Book was completed 900 years ago but it says little about the daily worries and concerns of the people whose land and animals are recorded in so much detail.
Tonight Peter France and Dr Christopher Dyer of the University of Birmingham evoke something of the real lives of those people at the Weald and Downland Open
Air Museum in Sussex. They are helped by three films:
Christopher Andrew learns from England rugby star
Mark Bailey about the social and economic impact of the rabbit;
Patricia Morison explains some of the ways open to men and women of those times to cure their illness and complaints;
Norman Stone investigates why there has never been another Domesday Book - a register of just who owns this green and pleasant land. He has uncovered a story of centuries of privacy, secrecy and vested interests which has left England as the only country in Europe without a public and accessible register of land ownership.

: Night Moves

Gene Hackman Susan Clark
Hired by a former
Hollywood starlet to find her daughter,
Harry Moseby - football star, turned detective - heads for Florida, where he finds the promiscuous teenager. Gradually, Moseby gets involved in the family's complicated and unhappy relationships - and an illegal smuggling activity. A witty and topical screenplay lifts the film above the level of the conventional thriller and allows Hackman to give one of his finest performances as the disillusioned detective.

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.
