: A Passage to Wisbech

Carrick is a dirty British Coaster - a 30-year-old tramp carrying unglamorous cargoes from port to port in the Channel and the North Sea. Her skipper and owner is Rick Waters, once part-time butler to Edward Heath.
George Norman, the mate, looks after the cargoes. The ship could capsize if a cargo shifts at sea. Tom Owen, ex-Royal Navy, struggles with Carrick's dodgy engine as it makes uncertain progress through the mad March days, carrying fertiliser to
Exmouth, grain to Antwerp, and spuds, improbably, to Wisbech.

Wenders's Wings
For the German director
Wim Wenders film-making has always been a nomadic business. Alice in the Cities, The American Friend,
Tokyo-ga and Paris Texas have taken him around half the globe.
In his latest film, Wings of Desire, Wenders returns to Berlin to confront German history and his own cultural identity.
Cohen for a Song
Leonard Cohen , the Canadian poet, has been recording for
21 years. Before his British tour Review talked to this unlikely pop star in Paris. Nairn's Legacy
With the re-issue of the classic Nairn's London in paperback, Jonathan Meades pays tribute to topographical writer Ian Nairn.

: Secret Services

The Social Security
Over five million people claim benefits from the DHSS; the social security budget runs to some E46 billion. Behind these cold statistics are a myriad of stories, of needs and problems. In the frontline dealing with them are the Social Security officers. Day in, day out, in DHSS offices across the country, they face the claimants and measure out the money. Caught between society's need for a welfare system, and the equal need to control its cost, they are widely seen by claimants as misers, and by the rest of us as faceless bureaucrats.
For the first time, a crew has been given access to film claimants and officers in their daily encounters inside a DHSS office. This film is the result: a record of what happened in the week the Government altered the Social Security regulations, inside one DHSS office.

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.
