: Floyd on Britain and Ireland

Modest and unassuming gastronaut Keith Floyd visits his native Somerset for a spot of lunch. He creates a dish that conjures up the smells of an English country lane in high summer: rabbit cooked in sparkling gooseberry wine. Also he checks on the quality of school dinners at his old alma mater - Wellington School. After several helpings of chocolate pudding he visits his old chum Gary Rhodes to cook Britain's signature dish, braised oxtail.

: Brass Tacks

Proof of the Pudding
How safe is the food we eat? As we are encouraged to eat more fresh fruit and vegetables, are we being properly protected from the potentially harmful effects of the pesticides that keep them free of disease?
The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries, insists that pesticides must be considered innocent until proven guilty. But laboratory testing for pesticides is expensive and uncertain. There is virtually no monitoring of imported fruit and vegetables.
Hugh Prysor-Jones reports on how science is being summoned to support the status quo, giving the benefit of the doubt to pesticides rather than to the nation's health.

: The Mind Machine

A series of 13 programmes presented by Colin Blakemore 4: Rhythms of Life
Dreaming may be the brain's way to clean up its circuitry every night - a jet-lagged Colin Blakemore visits a sleep research laboratory in California and explores the meaning of the dreams he has there, with the help of the noted biologist Francis Crick.
Sleep and dreaming, jet lag, seasonal depression, sex - all are controlled by biological clocks in the brain. For
Mitch Heller , a strap-on version of the part of the brain which controls hormonal rhythms restored his sex-life - and a 'miracle baby' was the result.

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.
