Last of six films about some of the 20th century's most enduring designs. Levi's 501 Jeans
They were designed by a tailor in Reno, Nevada, for a customer who was a miner. Levi-Strauss and Company patented them in 1873. They have powerful competitors in the jeans war, but the company spent millions persuading the world that their product is the authentic, legendary jean.

: In the Shadow of Fujisan

The last of three programmes that look at the role of wild animals in Japanese life, art and religion.
Long Live the Turtle
The Japanese have explored the rich harvest of the ocean more, perhaps, than any other nation.
The place of sea-turtles in legend, myth and commerce illustrates Japan's changing attitudes to the sea and its wildlife - attitudes that embrace the bloody killing of dolphins and prayers for the souls of dead whales, importing turtles by the thousand for their shells and yet venerating them as symbols of good luck.

: BBC Design Awards

The Winners Introduced by Jancis Robinson and Christopher Frayling For the last six weeks thousands of votes have been pouring in to the Design
Council from viewers and visitors to the six special
Design Awards exhibitions. Tonight the results in the three awards categories are revealed. Who won in Products? The computer terminal, the bathroom suite, the micro-excavator, the mixer or the micro-light aircraft? In Environment - the White Horse Hill, the Megget reservoir, the Oratory, the Cambridge research laboratories or 1 Finsbury Avenue? In
Graphics - 'Blueprint', Boots' footcare packaging, the stamps, the Independent or the Honeywell commercial? Is the public choice the same as that of the judges who made the original selection? There is a special award for the design which gained the most votes overall, and British Telecom Mobile Communications - who mounted the exhibitions - announce a commission to the designer they consider of special merit.

11.45 Maths: Complex Analysis
The properties of complex functions depend on the nature of their domains. Cauchy's Theorem was proved initially for star-shaped regions. But it is actually true for all regions without holes, ie simply-connected regions.
12.10 Statistics: The Normal Distribution
The average and spread of data are important - but so are the skewness and pointedness.

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.
