: The Money Programme: Open for Business

British industrialists are wringing their hands about European predators and demanding more protection against foreign takeovers. They say UK companies present easy takeover targets but it is much harder for UK companies to make acquisitions in Europe. Are they right? Henry Harington reports from Brussels, Paris, Munich and Rome on a rash of company takeovers within the EEC as Europe prepares for the single market in 1992. Some of Europe's current merger maestros show how takeovers of EEC companies can succeed.

: The Natural World

Final programme Coral Triangle narrated by Barry Paine
The reefs of the 7,000 islands of the Philippines are as rich in life as the tropical forests that once cloaked the land.
Filipinos traditionally looked to both reef and forest for a livelihood, but now the demands of 58 million people threaten the very plants and animals on which all depend. Notorious Muru Ami ships exploit crews of children to sweep the reefs bare; fishermen use dynamite to kill fish for the market, or poison to stun them for the international aquarium trade; and on land yet more trees are felled and soil washed to the sea. Can people, reefs and forests survive and live together? Photography

: Sound on Film

In these four special commissions, some of Britain's finest young composers were invited to create pieces combining the vivid imagery of film and video with an adventurous approach to musical sound. 1: Missa del Cid by Judith Weir
How does a composer of today add to the great tradition of musical settings of the Latin Mass? Judith Weir 's ambition to write a Mass was finally realised when she read the 13th century Spanish epic poem, El Cid , chronicling the combat between Moors and Christians. The result is a striking fusion of litany and violent epic filmed in an appropriately ritualistic style and environment.

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.
