For years, Jim Blandings, a successful advertising executive, has lived with his wife Muriel in a cramped New York apartment. Finally the Blandings decide to move out and lead an ideal life in their dream house, a 'ruin' in Connecticut.
This sparkling comedy gave Cary Grant and the enchanting Myrna Loy two of their best roles.

The Men's Downhill from Aspen, USA
David Vine introduces the latest high-speed action from ski racing's annual competition to find the season's most consistent downhiller. Switzerland's PETER MUELLER is on an Aspen hat-trick, in fact he's won four of the last six World Cup races on 'Ruthie's Run' here in Colorado.
Meanwhile the women resume their quest for downhill honours on the Olympic course at Mount

: The First Eden

The Mediterranean World and Man
A series of four programmes by David Attenborough
1: The Making of the Garden It was a dramatic birth.
Six million years ago the Mediterranean was a desert. Then the Atlantic broke through at the Strait of Gibraltar filling the basin. The Mediterranean sea was born. With the water came marine life; the shores were clothed in forests; the air was filled with the sounds of birds, and the scent of flowers.
David Attenborough presents a spectacular portrait of the Mediterranean, from its birth to the time some 10,000 years ago when people began to settle around the eastern shores and transform this paradise garden - their first Eden.

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.
