: The Money Programme

Commercial Brakes
'A licence to print money' was how one ITV boss described commercial television in its early days. For 30 years a TV franchise has virtually guaranteed big profits to the contracting companies. But soon the chilly winds of competition could put a stop to all that. Paul Burden reports on the franchise operators whose comfortable world is threatened.

: The Natural World

Nuts in Brazil
Anthony Smith and three friends build a do-it-yourself, steam-powered catamaran in the heart of the Amazon and launch it on the upper reaches of the Rio Araguaia. This is the story of their 3,000 kilometre journey through the wilderness - and the Wild West - of Amazonia, from the magnificent forests of the Mato Grosso to the ultimate symbol of the lost innocence of the Amazon, the mighty dam at Tucurui, where Brazil is busy trading in its forests, and its Indians, for a fast buck. But is is not quite the macho epic the travellers are anticipating....

: Face to Face

Fourth often programmes introduced by Joan Bakewell. John Freeman had a difficult subject in Evelyn Waugh when he interviewed him in 1960. Waugh, author of Brideshead Revisited, was in characteristically obstructive frame of mind. The result is a rare glimpse into the life and temperament of one of the greatest novelists of this century.

: Out of the Doll's House

A series of eight films exploring the way women's lives have changed in the 20th century.
4: Mustn't Grumble
'Anything from the waist down was absolutely taboo. There was a certain amount of embarrassment and shame about women's illnesses.' In the first years of this century free health care was largely for working men.
Most women had to pay the doctor and accepted chronic backache, anaemia, bronchitis and acute gynaecological problems as part of everyday life, treating themselves with home remedies handed down from their mothers and grandmothers. It was common for women to spend as many as 15 years being pregnant or breast-feeding, compared with fewer than four years today. Series producer

: Visions of Britain

Personal views on architecture and the environment.
Brideshead and the Tower Blocks
Written and presented by Patrick Wright
In the first of a five-part series, author Patrick Wright casts a critical eye on two of the key architectural symbols of our times - the country house and the tower block. His story unfolds around Sutton House, a Tudor country house, almost forgotten among Hackney's high-rise flats in the East End of London. Patrick is also strongly critical of the way in which conservation is often made to serve political ends.

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.
