Prized by gourmet, netsman and angler alike, sea trout and Atlantic salmon return to spawn in the rivers of their birth. The magic of their migration has been revealed by the scientist, but it is through the angler's eyes that we become aware of their extraordinary behaviour.

: Eye to Eye

Six documentaries by black film-makers.
1: In Search of the Spirit of a Storyteller
The first in a new series of Ebony documentaries traces the life and work of Jamaican painter, sculptor and author Namba Roy as seen through the eyes of his son, Tamba. Namba Roy, descendant of slaves brought to Jamaica from the Congo, spent much of his life in the Maroon village of Accompong. He learned much of his art from his grandfather who instilled in him the folklore of Africa. He died in 1961 when his son was only 2 years old.
Now Tamba Roy returns to
Jamaica, to the village where his father lived, to the people who knew him.
This is Tamba Roy 's personal odyssey in search of the spirit of a storyteller.

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.
