: A Class Apart

Aneurin Bevan and the Labour Party
Although he died in 1960, Aneurin Bevan 's influence on Labour politics is still a strong one.
Professor Dai Smith argues that, far from Bevan being an anachronism, modern politicians still have to catch up with him. He analyses
Bevan's devastating oratory, his achievements as the minister who created the National Health Service and his role as a man who sometimes shocked his own supporters as much as he did the Tory Party.
The programme features contributions from
Rt Hon Neil Kinnock , mp Rt Hon Michael Foot , mp
Rt Hon Barbara Castle , MEP Lord Hailsham of St Marylebone

: The Natural World

Nighthunters
Narrated by Judi Dench A faint whisper of broad wings in the gloom, a flash of talons and the squeak of a rodent clamped in its powerful grasp - this is the traditional image of an owl. But owls are more than things that go pounce in the night. The basic owl design has developed into 130-odd species. Some owls stand as tall as a golden eagle, others no bigger than a robin. They feed on rats and insects, fish and frogs - and even other owls. They are found among Arctic pack ice or the Arizona desert. Written and produced by DILYS BREESE

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.
