: Whose House Is itAnyway?

Most people believe their home is their castle. But it isn't. If the council want it, it's theirs. Billy and Gordon Howard still believe Rose Cottage belongs to them. Barnsley Council knows better. It has placed a compulsory purchase order on the cottage and surrounding land.
The bachelor brothers, aged 65 and 73, are set in then-ways and absolutely refuse to budge.
Since this film was first shown, hundreds of people have written to ask what happened to the brothers.
In this updated version of the film, which was the BAFTA award-winner for the best factual series of this year, and nominated for the Prix Italia award, the struggle draws to a close. Billy and Gordon threaten to use their shotgun when the bailiffs arrive. Photography

: Son of a Gun

or How Sam Colt Changed America
The American Wild West was the America of cowboys and frontier towns. Of Dodge City, Wichita and Abilene. A land celebrated in 2,000 Western movies. But were the movies fact or fantasy?
The Wild West lasted only 15 years. During that time, lawmen lived longer and citizens experienced less crime than in the cities of the eastern United States.
But Sam Colt , the huckster, showman and libertine who invented the first practical revolver, gave America a new idea of itself. America became a gun culture. This film, with the help of Hollywood, shows how. Film editor DICK ALLEN

: McCartney

'I don't try and analyse too much. I think it is dangerous, it is like believing your own myth. I try and keep away from all that, I always try and write instinctively and hope it comes out right.'
(PAUL MCCARTNEY , 1986)
At the beginning of September Paul McCartney released Press to Play, his
15th album since the Beatles broke up in 1970. In a recent programme Paul talked in detail about his hugely successful solo career. This specially extended version includes additional, previously unseen, archive footage of McCartney and Wings in performance and unseen film of the Beatles at work in Studio 2, Abbey Road in the early 60s.

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.
