: No Limits

Tonight the world's fastest moving rock show comes from Buxton, at 2,000 feet above sea level one of the highspots in the series. Jenny Powell and Tony Baker with newcomers Paul Jordan and Susan Williams rise to the occasion and to several Derbyshire peaks as well.
The intrepid team travels by tram, train and narrow boat to discover if the local economy is entirely based on Bakewell tarts; if England's highest pub is only for the upwardly mobile; if the situation at the Buxton Micrarium is being magnified out of proportion; and what the best-dressed wells are wearing this year.

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.

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.
