Brass Tacks on Sport
Sport has become much more than just sport. Often it is the stories behind a sport which attract more attention than the event itself. For the next six weeks David Taylor and Kathy Tayler look beyond the results and the razzmatazz and explore some of the major issues which now affect sport.
Among this week's reports - the increasing pressures faced by sports officials:
On the Line reports on the soccer referees who are leaving the game because of abuse and physical attacks.
Also, the hidden costs behind Britain's bid to stage the Olympic Games.

The seventh of eight programmes Auntie's 's Bag
Heathrow Airport: sniffer dogs are routinely checking a Pakistan Airlines plane while, on the tarmac, officers and dogs are looking for drug concealments in passengers' bags. Arrivals from Pakistan receive particular attention and this one suddenly yields a 'dirty bag', a suitcase probably containing heroin. 'Auntie' and her nephew are stopped in the green channel and interrogated. The young man says, 'It is Auntie's bag - she has the key.'
Auntie is questioned through an interpreter. 'It is not my case,' she says, glaring at the officer and becoming increasingly belligerent. Her interrogator, though, gently persists ...

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.
