Liverpool
Tonight the world's fastest rock show comes from
Liverpool. Regular hosts Tony Baker and Jenny Powell go scousehunting with North West presenters Susan Williams and Paul Jordan , a local lad, scousetrained from birth, and determined to show there's more to Merseyside than unemployment and Beatles' memorabilia.
They visit Brookside, Britain's best-known scousing estate; meet scousehold names from football, including Beardsley and Barnes, Radcliffe and Steven; test Stanley the counting horse from the scousehold cavalry; and roam the Albert Dock , stunningly redeveloped and justification for
Liverpudlians to feel scouseproud, with its museums and exhibitions.

: Brass Tacks

Dog Dogma
The British say they're devoted to dogs. The facts show otherwise. Every day 1,000 healthy dogs are destroyed because no-one wants them. Half a million strays roam the streets, scavenging in packs, fouling public places, causing accidents and creating fear.
The RSPCA believes it's time for tighter controls. The
Government is preparing to abolish the dog licence - the only existing restraint on a growing menace.
Join John Harrison in the Brass Tacks studio with the politicians, the professionals, and the viewers who rang in after last week's film, to ask: is there a price on a dog's life?

However, you will find sketches, monologues, established stars and emerging stars in 30 minutes of comedy and variety that would be worth at least an hour anywhere else.

: Australia

The fifth in an anthology of documentaries for the nation's bicentennial. From Woy Woy to Wagga Wagga with humorist and honorary citizen Spike Milligan
'Australia is so big that I can only show you some of it - my some of it.'
Spike starts in Woy Woy , a small piece of suburbia-in-the-bush near Sydney. It's where his parents emigrated from London in 1953. 'I thought they were mad.
Then I came. And I went mad. I fell in love with the place.'
With his old friend, actor Bill Kerr , he heads for the bush - via Gumly Gumly and Grong Grong - to discover dunnies, yabbies, kelpies, tinnies, pokies and billies, to say nothing of smokoes, strides and dampers. All in all, a thoroughly Spikeish Oz odyssey. Sound IAN SANSAM

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.

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.
