Presentation
The world's fastest rock show which has launched no fewer than 22 new hosts in three years, visits the nerve centre of presentation in London's Television Centre, domain of polished professionals who transport you from one programme to the next with effortless ease. Tonight these dulcet-toned doyens of the art surrender their continuity suites to Jenny Powell and Tony Baker , the teenage sensations who've done tor TV presentation what
Torville and Dean did for cricket. It's all just an excuse to replay some of the highlights from the series: exotic locations, lunatic links, videos and, of course, the latest word on the UK and US charts. JONATHAN KING

: Brass Tacks

It's the safest road in the world - what makes it dangerous are the people on it. Twenty-eight years ago today, Britain's first stretch of the Ml motorway was opened. Since then cars have improved in efficiency, safety and speed. Last year 248 people were killed on motorways - a mere five per cent road deaths, but five per cent that could have been prevented if drivers took more care. Roisin McAuley has spent an ordinary week with the West Midlands
Motorway Police observing the extraordinary errors that cause 70 per cent of all road accidents in Britain.
Researcher DOROTHY ALLEN Producer STEVE HEWLETT Editor COLIN CAMERON BBC North West
Does the driving test need updating to include motorway experience?

Eskimos and igloos, in fact no igloos at all, but a place of change.

The Wonders of Ellora (John Seely 1788-1824)
Presented by David Drew
/ rushed into the wonders of these immortal works; but it is totally impossible to describe the feelings of awe excited in the mind upon first beholding these stupendous excavations. John Seely , a young army officer travelled across western India in 1810 to visit the rock-cut temples of Ellora. The 300-mile trek on horseback from Bombay was often dangerous - wild animals, cholera, disabling heat and bandit tribes all posed a threat - but what he found more than made up for the rigours of his journey.
David Drew follows in Seely's footsteps to rediscover
Ellora's remarkable range of 34 cave temples hacked out of a mountainside - one of the most spectacular ancient sites in the East. Roger Rees as the voice of John Seely Photography JOHN ELSE

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.
