Six documentaries by black film-makers 4: Wait on the Lord
'You may have tried the whisky bottle, but try Jesus. You may have tried cocaine, but try Jesus' advises Dexter Edmunds , minister in the Bethel United Church. And, belying the stereotyped media pictures of rioting and crime in Bristol's black communities, more and more young people are turning to Christ. They are forsaking the clubs and pubs and finding alternative excitement within the Church. Twenty-three-year-old Lance Dinnall explains: 'What has the Church done for me? Everything!'

: Glass Kingdoms at Kew

Presented by David Attenborough
During the 19th century the conservatories of Kew, like the great Palm House, were not only pleasure grounds for the people, but a vast research centre. Today Kew is yet more important as the home of what are often threatened species. The biggest glasshouse to be built there since Victorian times will be a crucial element in that conservation. How do you create a new glasshouse for the 21st century? How do you create a building with ten climates under one roof, from tropical swamp to arid desert? David Attenborough tells the story of the new Princess of Wales Conservatory and also of the great Victorian Palm House, currently under restoration - two buildings for their day, the most revolutionary in the world.

: Loving Memory

Written and presented by Tony Harrison The Muffled Bells
'The curfew tolls the knell of parting day ...'
Breamore in Hampshire is a perfect example of the English churchyard, as described by Thomas Gray in his 18th-century elegy. The undertaker and the sexton, the rector and the squire remain, administering to the two closely-knit congregations: the living, who sing the harvest hymns in the church, and their dead outside in seven layers underground. For centuries, continuity in Breamore has comforted the bereaved, but it's a fragile thread. When the village gathers one dark winter afternoon to muffle the bells and bury the last miller, Stanley Hall , they are attending rather more than the funeral of one craftsman.
With their help, poet Tony Harrison writes his own elegy, though his is for the churchyard, for the crafts of village life ... and also for the craft he shares with Thomas Gray.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
