Going Homeless
Fifty people a day ask Mary Tester for a home. It's her job to decide who Westminster Council has a legal duty to house. In one of the wealthiest boroughs in Britain, the number of homeless continues to rise, yet the council is determined to sell off nearly half of its housing stock. Roisin MacAuley goes backstage with the public servants who have to balance political targets with human desperation, and make hard judgments about who goes homeless.

: The Duty Men

Third of nine programmes The Couriers
Tonight, the second of two films with the 'Romeos', a crack Customs cocaine target team, as Operation Renaissance accelerates.
There is clandestine day and night observation of the south London pub where the 'Mr Big ' is recruiting new couriers. Surveillance switches to Earls Court as the organiser and couriers are monitored purchasing their tickets for a run to Australia via South America to pick up the cocaine.
The Romeos shadow their departure from Heathrow and an undercover team of Customs and police are waiting for them in Australia. In south London, 60 officers prepare for a series of dawn raids. The cameras follow the action in Australia and to south London as officers use the 'big key' to enter the target premises. Meanwhile, the man the Romeos have targeted as their main suspect flies unknowingly into their arms at Heathrow.

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.

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