: Goodbye London Aerodrome

From 1911 onwards it was the cradle of British aviation. Air aces of both wars learned to fly there - many pioneer aircraft were built there. The royal family kept aeroplanes there and attended its fabulous air displays.
Originally called the 'London Aerodrome', this extraordinary airfield has been an RAF station since
1918.
On 1 April, in the presence of HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, the RAF, with a final fly-past, said goodbye to Hendon, leaving only the famous museum. With the aid of many who flew there,
Glyn Worsnip looks back at RAF Hendon's remarkable and romantic history. Executive producer DAVID HANINGTON

: Horizon: Trial Babies

Sue Higgins and Brenda Wells are both pregnant, and at increased risk of having a Down's Syndrome child. At Guy's Hospital, they're told about a new way of detecting abnormalities only eight weeks into their pregnancy, rather than the 18 weeks of the standard test.

Which test they have will not be decided on medical grounds, but at random by computer. What unknown risks might they be submitting their babies to? Shouldn't they be allowed to choose which test to have? Why isn't the new one available to all?
"Horizon" investigates why such lotteries are necessary, and why they pose painful dilemmas for the doctors and patients involved.

Let Them Live
From pilot whaling in the Faroe Islands to the wild bird trade in Senegal, the Environmental Investigation Agency can be found filming man's inhumanity to animal.
It has compiled its own harrowing film from the main campaigns over the last five years. The film explores its methods and motives, hopes and successes; and shows that those who buy caged birds from pet shops, or primates for laboratory experiments, bear some responsibility for the cruelty perpetrated.
Narrator Richard Gibson Film editor STEPHEN SAUNDERS
Film cameraman CLIVE LONSDALE Written and produced by DAVE CURREY and ALLAN THORNTON Open Space is the programme where the public can make programmes under their own editorial control with help from the Community Programme Unit.

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.

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