Programmes for Women
Should women have their own programmes on television? Or does that just relegate them to a minority status despite making up the majority of the audience? Lisa Appignanesi reports on women's broadcasting in Britain - interviewing
Mavis Nicholson and Esther Rantzen , and visiting
Radio 4's Woman's Hour. And in Chicago, Oprah Winfrey talks about her daytime show for women.
In the studio, three television executives discuss the questions raised.

: Horizon

The Return of the Osprey
Diving at 50 miles per hour, the osprey can catch two fish at the same time, each a quarter of its own weight. Its spectacular aerobatics make it one of the most remarkable birds in the world.
But 20 years ago the species began to disappear in New
York State. This film reveals how human interference nearly drove the osprey to extinction, and how a handful of dedicated bird lovers are achieving extraordinary success in enabling its recovery.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
