: A Long Day's Journey

Up to London on the train - that's the way thousands of people from all over the south of England start their working day. Commuting can be expensive, frustrating and exhausting. But, despite complaints of late trains and overcrowded conditions, city workers still accept the daily journey as a necessary evil. So how do you recognise the symptoms when the travelling becomes too much to cope with? And has anyone really assessed the real stresses of commuting?

: I Preferred Madness....

A centenary profile of John Logie Baird (1888-1946) in his own words. He was the archetypal inventor - obsessive, impatient and frustrated by the lack of recognition for his achievements.
And those achievements were unparalleled - the first television transmission, first colour transmission, 3-D TV, a revolutionary navigational aid called Noctovision, not forgetting more down-to-earth inventions, such as the medicated undersock.
But Baird died embittered by the refusal of the establishment to give him the credit he deserved, by the moneymen's failure to back him and his own naivety that had lost him a fortune.
In 1941, while convalescing from a heart attack, Baird dictated his autobiography. Never published, it forms the core of this progamme.

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.
