It's usually J.R. starring in Dallas. This week it's J.K. visiting Dallas.
Everyone says: 'Aren't you going to run out of stories in America?' The answer is no. Cities keep growing. Dallas was filmed for the very first series and it's interesting to see the changes. J.K. also bumps into old friend and protege Peter Gabriel.

: 40 Minutes

A series of films about the way we live now.
'I've caused you a lot of trouble, Dad,' whispered 9-year-old William [text removed] , in bed in London's Royal Free Hospital, and desperately ill with leukaemia. His best chance of survival was a bone marrow transplant.
Nicholas Woolley tells the story of what happened to William, his 6-year-old sister Harriet - donor of the bone marrow - and their parents Tim and Sue [text removed] during the emotional months of William's treatment last summer.
The family knew that even with a transplant there was a real risk of failure.
The village community of Terrington St John, Norfolk, showed its concern for the popular [text removed]. At school William's friends bought him a cassette recorder to play their messages. Soon there was William's birthday party to look forward to ...
This morning, all being well, William returns to school for the first time in nine months. But it will be years before he can really say he's cured.

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
