: Natural Concern

The Running of the Deer
Exmoor is home to one of the last remaining herds of hunted stags and hinds.
Opposition to deer hunting here has mounted in recent years - at no time more than last autumn, when a stag was chased onto a house roof near Porlock and the resulting photograph shown in newspapers all over the world. Last week, Ian Breach heard the case for stag hunting. Tonight, the hunt's opponents have their say.
They believe the days of the Devon and Somerset Stag
Hounds should be numbered. Director GARY JOHNSTON

First of six programmes Fun with Magnets Dear Radio Times,
Hooray for Alexei Sayle ! The funniest TV show since The Good Life! What a tonic his new series Stuff is. I haven't laughed so much since Margo fell flat on her face in the compost heap. One tiny request though, could you get rid of that fat b*****d in the tight suit and put in more scenes with Felicity Kendal wrinkling her nose up? Many, many thanks,

: Rights Not Charity

An Open Space special
For many of this country's six million disabled people, 1988 takes a notorious position in the history of their struggle for equality, rights and recognition. This year's controversial Social Security changes raised the temperature of disability politics, long simmering as a potential embarrassment for any government.
This uncompromising documentary, filmed in England and Sweden, is made by two disabled people, Patricia Rock and Colin Low. Together they critically assess the conditions of life experienced by significant numbers of our disabled population, who day by day face intolerance, ignorance and discrimination in all aspects of their lives.

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.
