Kay Alexander opens the file on Glue Ear
Three out of four children will at some time experience an episode of Glue Ear - their middle ear blocks with thick fluid and hearing gradually fades. If undetected, hearing loss may result in speech delay, poor performance at school, and behaviour problems. Routine surgery can treat the symptoms, but when hearing-aids can often effect a solution, are so many operations really necessary? Producer DAVID NELSON

The Hunger Winter
In September 1944, in retaliation for Dutch support of the Arnhem landings, the Nazis cut off all food supplies to the population of western Holland. Through the following winter, stocks fell until by March 1945 the official ration was down to 500 calories a day. As
4 million people faced death from starvation, the only hope of relief lay in persuading the Germans to negotiate an unprecedented truce. But as Dutch men and women died in the streets, the Allies still had a war to fight and a victory to win. In the end it took courage and nerve in the face of German guns at point-blank range to end the Hunger Winter.

Visions of Big Business
When Cadeby colliery in Yorkshire closed last year, the only chance of continuing employment for those who took redundancy was to run their own business. Ken Savage 's vision of big business was in selling china. In his community he's reckoned to be a success, but Ken's not so sure. He admits to being a bit frightened.
Former miners make reluctant entrepreneurs. Like the rest, there's something in Ken's background and surroundings which is holding him back.

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.
