: Out of Court

with David Jessel , Sue Cook and film reporter Ed Boyle This week: half a million couples in Britain are living together outside marriage. But as bedlock without wedlock means losing the law's protection, many couples are now following the American example of 'cohabitation contracts' to regulate everything from dividing up the joint home to sharing the washing-up. Are these contracts legal? Studio director PIETER MORPURGO Producer ALAN BOOKBINDER

: The Duty Men

Fourth of seven programmes filmed over two years inside the secretive world of HM Customs and Excise.
The Red and the Green
A wry, yet disturbing, look at the daily grind in the red and green customs' channels of the world's busiest international airport, London Heathrow. Target flights from drug-growing areas usually produce results, but mostly officers have to rely on a mix of intuition, graft, luck and the 'revenue nose'.
'Fifty per cent of those we stop will have something over the top,' says one officer.
Tolerance towards the ordinary passenger tempted into 'the little bit extra' does not extend to those whose duty-free turns out to be cannabis. The insight into the 'Throne Room', where officers doing the nastiest job in customs wait for the 'stuffers' and 'swallowers', ensures that no one can ever look at those quiet customs people in the same way again.

: Woody Allen

Love, Death, Sex and Matters Arising ...
To millions of filmgoers
Woody Allen is a fast-talking, awkward, permanently adolescent misfit obsessed with love, death and sex. The real Woody Allen is a hardworking and thoughtful writer of plays, short stories and films; an actor who took years to perfect his own style; a disciplined and demanding director. With one major film a year to his credit since the late 1960s, he has become America's most prestigious comic artist, in the unique position of being able to make the films he likes with the people he knows - Diane Keaton ,
Mia Farrow , Tony Roberts.
Christopher Frayling visited Woody Allen in New York, the setting and background of his best-known films - Annie Hall, Manhattan, Hannah and Her Sisters.
In a rare televison interview he looks back over his successful career - the early comedies - Take the Money and Run, Bananas, Sleeper, Love and Death; the more serious films - Interiors,
Stardust Memories; and the affectionate celebrations of his own world - Broadway Danny Rose, Radio Days, The Purple Rose of Cairo. Film editor JOHN LEE

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.
