: Design Classics

Six films about some of the 20thcentury'senduringdesigns. 5: The London Underground
By the early 1930s, the London Underground had become exceedingly complicated. The classic map used today was an unsolicited attempt to make the system easier to understand and use. It became one of British graphic design's greatest triumphs. It helped give London Transport an identity, and has been copied by transit systems throughout the world. It has absorbed all the additions to the system since it was first sketched out in a school exercise book not by a designer, but by an obscure draughtsman, Harry Beck.

Janice's Choice
Janice Blenkharn faces the hardest choice of her life.
Whether or not she wants to be told if she will develop an incurable genetic disease called Huntington's Chorea. Every child of an affected parent has a 50-50 chance of inheriting it. Janice's mother died of Huntington's Chorea, so Janice is at risk. If she develops it, then her children will be at risk. Until now, there has been no way of knowing who will be affected and who spared. But thanks to painstaking research in a remote South American fishing village, a test now exists. It offers Janice, and others at risk from this fatal disease, the chance to see into the future.

: The Little Train to Lynton

1: Success to the Railway In 1898 one of Britain's best-loved branch lines was opened from Barnstaple to Lynton in North Devon; a 191-mile scenic trip that took one-and-a-half hours. The track was only two feet wide, the engines and coaches mere toys beside the main line trains, yet it was a real working railway.
It closed in 1935, killed by the motor car, but it is not forgotten. In the first of two films, former passengers recall the magic of the railway with the help of photographs and rare archive film. Written and narrated by Gwyn Richards

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.
