: Year of the French

July: The Seaside Hoteliers The holiday season means hard work for James and Francoise Laporte , whose two-star Hotel Trianon is in La Rochelle, on the Atlantic coast. James buys fresh seafood each morning, runs the bar and acts as night porter; Francoise looks after the rooms and the restaurant. Meanwhile the holiday-makers enjoy the beaches of the old harbour town, and join in the festivities of 14 July.

: Wild Flower

Thistles
These flowers are the warriors of the plant world. They're armed like battleships with leaves, stems and even flowers barbed with prickles to keep would-be enemies at bay. Michael Jordan looks at how this defence strategy is put into practice.

: The Queen's Peace

An Out of Court special On the day of the royal wedding, police marksmen on the roofs of Whitehall watched with loaded rifles for threats to Prince Andrew and his bride. Those same riflemen are the men who will fire the plastic bullet guns if, or when, they are used in a riot on mainland Britain.
This film follows a group of these special policemen, who are trained to kill, yet at the same time are expected to be ordinary beat bobbies. Reporter Ed Boyle We have not heard such voices before SUNDAY TIMES Producer STEPHEN LAMBERT (R)

: Did You See...?

Television Topics In the first of four programmes based on extracts from the last series of Did You See... ?,
Ludovic Kennedy introduces three of the best feature items from the original evening editions of the programme.
Firstly, Hugh Sykes reports on an experiment in which people without television were asked to watch it for two weeks. And, for the same period, television addicts were deprived of their favourite pastime. How did the two groups survive? Stephen Fry looks at weathermen of the world, past and present; and there's a chance to meet the contestants and question-setters of Mastermind, television's most intellectual quiz show.

: Norman Wisdom in One Good Turn

continues a season of his films, tonight with Joan Rice
Norman's efforts to save an orphanage and provide presents for the children lead him into a succession of wild adventures: a riotous backstage chase, the London-Brighton walking race and a daredevil drive in a model car are all part of the chaos he leaves behind him on his way to a good deed.

: SOE - A Secret Army

The second of eight stories about the Special Operations Executive.
Narrated by Michael Bryant One of the tasks of SOE in World War Two was to raise guerrilla forces in countries occupied by the enemy. Nowhere was this more important than in France where the Allied armies were going to have to fight their way ashore on D-Day against heavy German odds.
SOE sent hundreds of agents - men and women - into France over three years between 1941 and 1944. By D-Day SOE's
French Section had nearly 50 networks ready to strike at the German rear.
One of these was the 'Jockey' network in south-eastern France, whose organiser Francis Cammaerts , a schoolmaster in peacetime, became one of SOE's most successful agents.
It was patient, dangerous and deadly work but it paid off - with spectacular results! All the classic virtues of in depth documentary at its best

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.
