Yorkshire Dales
Jenny PoweII, Tony Baker and the world's fastest rock show visit Swaledale and Wensleydale, part of North Yorkshire known as 'Herriot's Country' since the success of the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small.
As Jenny and Tony discover, 99 per cent of those creatures are sheep, so nobody mentions mint sauce. But that still leaves plenty to talk about: pop videos, the UK and US charts and powerplays.

: Brass Tacks

Fag Ends
Smokers are a shrinking minority in Britain, yet non-smoking workplaces are still the exception rather than the rule. Last week Brass Tacks disclosed that non-smokers who live or work with smokers run a greater risk of contracting lung cancer. Yet the Government, employers and trade unions continue to fight shy of drastic measures to restrict smoking in public places.
Tonight John Harrison asks Brass Tacks viewers and professional campaigners just how far measures to protect non-smokers should go, or do smokers, too, have the right to choose?

The Lost City of the Incas
(Hiram Bingham 1878-1956) Presented by David Drew Suddenly I found myself confronted with the walls of ruined houses built of the finest quality of Inca stonework. Itfairly took my breath away. What could this place be?
Hiram Bingham was a young American who, in 1911, set off into a remote, unexplored part of the Peruvian Andes.
He was searching for the last refuge of the Incas, a city that was a treasure house of ancient riches and which, according to legend, the Spanish conquistadors had never found.
After only a week, Bingham was to discover the spectacular ruins of Machu Picchu, perched on a forest-clad mountain top. It is the most romantic archaeological site in the world, but is it, in fact, the true lost city?
David Drew follows
Bingham's trail from Cusco, the ancient Inca capital, through mountain peaks to Machu Picchu and the jungles beyond and attempts to resolve the mystery.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
