: Eyes on the Prize

The story of America's civil rights years, 1954-65, in six parts: told by the men and women who fought the second American revolution. 2: Fighting Back 1957-62 The declaration by the Supreme Court in 1954 that segregation in schools was unconstitutional met solid resistance in the South. In 1957 Governor Faubus of Arkansas called out the National Guard to ensure that only white students were admitted to Little Rock Central High School: a clear case of state troops preventing the enforcement of Federal law.
While the President hesitated, black students had to face an unruly mob. Someone suggested that if the mob was allowed to hang one kid, the others could escape. Produced and directed by JUDITH VECCHIONE

: Design Classics

The Coca-Cola Bottle
Coca-Cola started out as a syrup into which you squirted carbonated water. The bottle designed to contain the resulting fizzy drink became one of the most famous pieces of packaging in the world.
It was designed in 1916 as a result of a competition.
Despite changes of flavour, the introduction of cans and relentless global competition from rivals, the heavy glass bottle with the archaic-looking trademark still symbolises the American dream.
Accordingly it inspires approval or hostility - depending on taste. Narrated by Jancis Robinson
Like the bottle, this film was a winner.

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.
