: Network East

The new and exciting magazine in English bringing both current affairs and entertainment from the Asian world. It's lively, fun and sometimes controversial, covering stories affecting
Asians both here and abroad. Entertainment ranges from music to dance, from film clips to star interviews, from the classic to the modern. This week the programme reveals the plight of old folk being abandoned by their children. Is the myth of the happy, extended Asian family about to explode?
Network East talks to
Keith Vaz , Britain's first Asian MP since the 1920s. And in the studio, spectacular swordplay from South Indian martial arts group Kalari Cult.

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.

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.
