: Open Space: Bad Meaning Good

The hip-hop or rap scene came to this country from New York in the early 80s. The media exploited the new craze and then dropped what has become, for a growing number of young British blacks, a way of life.
Tim Westwood, a DJ well-respected 'on the street', has made this film as a showcase for the talented young rappers, scratch-mix DJs and graffiti artists in London. With special guest appearance by the New York kings of rap, Run DMC, at the Brixton Academy.

Open Space is the series where the public make programmes under their own editorial control with help from the Community Programme Unit.

It seemed like a perfectly normal birth: Mary and Gordon [text removed] never suspected anything was wrong with their first baby, Sara. The frequent rolling of her eyes was put down to wind, so it was three and a half months before they learned that Sara was born blind, with cataracts in both eyes. Q.E.D.'s cameras followed the [text removed] for four tense months as doctors and family struggled to rescue Sara from her world of darkness.

: Wildlife Showcase

A series of nine programmes featuring natural history films from other countries. Wild Cats
You've all seen cats attack a ball of wool, purr on your lap and sharpen their claws on furniture. Their habit of playing with their prey while it still lives, and stalking garden birds is less endearing. The world of their wild cousins is rarely seen; the elusive, graceful, and most deadly wild cats. In form and function, wild cats reach the peak of predatory evolution.

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.
