: Chronicle

Life and Death in Ancient Egypt
Ten years ago, Chronicle filmed Dr Rosalie David and her team as they unwrapped an Egyptian mummy. Soon their researches extended to the rest of the Manchester Museum collection and beyond - to Egypt itself.
In a skull-filled hut in the shadow of the Pyramids, dentist Frank Leek , who once examined the teeth of Tutankhamun, investigates the problem of pharaonic toothache.
Near the Valley of the Kings at Luxor, Dr David analyses the wall paintings of scenes of everyday life and discovers that some tools and techniques are still in use today.
Back in Manchester, pottery and metal objects are subject to multi-element analysis using a nuclear reactor to determine their date and composition; radiologists try to establish the age and cause of death of a young mummified child and Dr Eddie Tapp , Consultant
Histo-Pathologist, diagnoses the illnesses of a Priestess of Amon by use of an industrial endoscope to look inside the mummy's lungs and brain. By using these most up-to-date scientific techniques the team are discovering both the pleasant and the not-so-pleasant realities of life and death in Ancient Egypt.

: 40 Minutes

Bad Blood
Riding the Iron Horse - a roaring, full-throated Harley Davidson - across the open prairie is an American dream. Fifty thousand leather-clad bikers make romance come true as they converge, from all over the States and beyond, on Sturgis, a sleepy farming town in South
Dakota. The 48th annual
Black Hills Motorcycle Rally brings together weekenders on little Japanese bikes and hard-core, all-American Wild Ones. It's a raucous summer week of racing, drinking, partying and generally raising hell.
'The Sons of Silence' is one of the many bikers' chapters here. The Sons believe in America, freedom, white power, and loyalty to each other. They've got their own chaplain; women are not members, but 'property'.
Rebels against convention, they live by their own strict code - 'We are the Sons of Silence until death'. Music BRENDAN CROKER

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.
