: Micro Live

with Lesley Judd and Ian McNaught-Davis
Twelve-inch laser discs had a short, unsuccessful life for domestic video, but the smaller compact discs have really taken off. Now discs similar to CDs can be used to store data for computers. But the larger video discs are making a come-back in 'interactive' systems, such as the one launched this week by the BBC's Domesday
Project and are potentially ideal for education and training.
If primary schools don't yet have video disc players at least most of them do have a computer. British educational software leads the world, but lack of teacher training and resources may mean it is simply not used.
Kenneth Baker, Secretary of State for Education, spearheaded the introduction of computers in schools when he was Minister for Information Technology. Now he faces his critics over the lack of follow-up.

: The Poacher

There was a time in England when the law of the land conflicted with the law as it was written in the hearts of the peasants.
In 1822 the poacher was the people's hero and the scourge of the landowner.
Brian Glover tells of those turbulent days and the tragic death of Charles Smith, the Romsey poacher sent to the gallows for wounding a gamekeeper on the Broadlands Estate.

: Going to Pot

: Just Another Day

with John Pitman
Six films which go behind the scenes of places which are part of the British way of life. 3: The Blue Cross Hospital for Sick Animals
Nellie has got a sore throat, Bruce has an eye problem and keeps bumping into things, and Whiskey is coming round from an operation to stop him chasing the girls.
Nellie is a 10 1/2-foot python, Bruce is a tortoise and Whiskey was a torn cat. Today they're all in the consulting rooms at the Blue Cross Hospital for Sick Animals which has been operating for 50 years just behind Victoria Station.
It's for pet owners who can't afford vets, and all animal - and human - life is here.
Yum-Yum, Mimi and Lai-Lai - Pekinese - are here for a check-up. 'They're my children,' explains their mistress, 'I've got something to care for.'
There are happy endings - and sad incidents. Grace, a kitten who had to have a leg removed, is re-united with her owner, but an alsatian going blind has to be put to sleep. 'Most people need assurance about it because they think they are killing their animal,' says vet Janet Clift. 'But if it's in the best interest of the animals, it has to be done.'
It costs £{ million a year to run Victoria. Money well spent? 'Of course,' says administrator Paul Hannon. 'We not only help animals, we help owners, because for many people a pet is the most important thing in their life.' Photography IAN HILTON

: Arena

The Spirit of Lorca Federico Garcia Lorca, perhaps the best-known and loved Spanish poet and dramatist of this century, was brutally executed at the age of 38 during the early days of the Spanish Civil War. Tonight's Arena, in collaboration with the acclaimed Irish writer and Lorca biographer Ian Gibson , evokes his life and unravels the exact circumstances of his death. Close friend of Salvador Dali and Luis Bunuel , Lorca was a charismatic figure - musician, painter, actor, as well as a writer. The roots of his work lie deep in the rich culture, music and landscape of southern Spain. Through the recollections of friends and fellow poets, with singers and theatrical performances, in Spain, Cuba and the United States, this film evokes the passionate and potent spirit of Lorca's work and tragically short life.

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.
