Here King Arthur was buried in his lake-isle of Avalon.
And here is the ten-mile-wide circle of the Glastonbury Zodiac.

: Time on Our Hands

"It is September 14 1988..."
Back in 1963 the BBC broadcast a remarkable film which projected the viewer a quarter of a century into the future. Its aim was to look back at the extraordinary, almost unbelievable, events of those 25 years - wild imaginings like spiralling house prices, vast traffic jams and men walking on the moon. Tonight the present catches up with the future and we can see, for the first time in 25 years, just how right, and wrong, the makers of this amazing film were. After the film two of its original pundits, Kingsley Amis and Professor Stafford Beer and producer, Don Haworth meet again in company with Ludovic Kennedy to compare their predictions with the way things actually turned out.
"This Buoyant programme could be repeated a dozen times and still intrigue, delight and disturb me" Dennis Potter, Daily Herald TV critic, 1963

The Rhino War
The enemy is the poacher, his loot is the rhino's horn - highly prized in the Far East for medicines and aphrodisiacs and, in Arabia, for ornately carved dagger handles. Horns sell for more than E4,000 a pound - and a fully grown one can weigh four pounds. No wonder that the forces of conservation have, so far, been losing the war.
The film focuses on Kenya and Zimbabwe where the battle is at its fiercest. In just 30 years, the population of the black rhino has fallen from over
100,000 to fewer than 4,000. At that rate, one of the world's oldest and most magnificent creatures - he's been here for 45 million years - will be extinct by 1995, exterminated by man. Cameramen JOHN DAVEY MARTYN COLBECK

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.
