: David Hemery

It's 20 years since 'maestro' David Hemery won the Olympic 400 metres hurdles gold medal in Mexico, a feat remarkable not just for the world record-breaking time of 48.1 seconds, but more for the degree of his personal improvement during that year. At the beginning of 1968 Hemery's best time to date was 3.7 seconds slower than that Olympic winning time. 'Even if I had broken my leg the week before the Olympic Games it would still have been worth all the effort. I was a better and fitter person, both physically and mentally, for the experience.' Written and presented by Barry Davies

Shy and unassuming gastronaut Keith Floyd visits Loch Fyne , famous for its herrings, oysters and smoked salmon. Here, in a humble castle kitchen Floyd cooks a gigot of mutton with caper sauce for the local laird. This sheep, or 'wether' as it's known in Scotland, has spent the last four years of its life wandering the glens eating bog myrtle, heather and thyme and humming
Roamin'in the Gloamin ... Also in this fun-packed yet modest little programme
Floyd very nearly masters the gentle art of fly fishing. Cameraman RICHARD ELLIOTT Dubbing mixer STUART GREIG Videotape editor MIKE FOREN Producer DAVID PRITCHARD BBC South West

: Brass Tacks

A Life Worth Living?
Every week, 85 more people survive severe head injury. They, and 70,000 others like them, owe their lives to advances in neurosurgery and intensive care. They survive with brain damage, and for many, that's when the excellent professional help dries up. For once these patients are off the critical list, no one in the health or social services seems to know whose responsibility they are. They may have appalling physical and psychological problems, but they are sent back home to their families. What they need is rehabilitation: it does exist on the NHS, but only for a fortunate few. Susan Rae asks whether the medical profession is saving lives, only to waste them.

First of 13 programmes presented by Colin Blakemore Beginnings
'To me the human mind is the most important challenge left to science. The human brain makes us what we are.' The Temple of Apollo at Delphi is the setting for
Professor Blakemore's first exploration of the mind machine. He's helped by an extraordinary adult autistic patient, and philosophers and scientists including, Richard Leakey ,
Jane Goodall , Desmond Morris , Richard Dawkins , Nicholas Humphrey , John Searle and artist Jonathan Kenworthy. The programme goes back to the earliest hominids in Africa, and to our closest relatives, chimpanzees, who wage war and make tools. So how are we different? Film editor JUSTIN AMSDEN

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.
