: The Train Now Departing: Steam on the Isle of Man

Twenty years after the end of steam.
Fourth of six programmes.

Although scheduled steam-hauled trains ceased on the mainland 20 years ago the Isle of Man was unaffected by British Rail's modernisation plans. Queen Victoria was 25 when the steam railway opened to carry passengers between Douglas and Port Erin. It's still running 114 years later - and it even has one of the original locomotives! The Victorian Steam Railway and the Manx Electric Railway are the pride of the islanders who work on them, and they attract transport enthusiasts from all over the world.

: The Mind Machine

A series of 13 programmes presented by Colin Blakemore.
11: The Seventh Age
Tsuneo Tomita , aged 80 and still an active scientist, is
Professor Blakemore's guide to the exotic world of ageing in Japan. He warns of a crisis to come. By the end of the century, one in five of us in the industrial world will be over 65. But being old need not be a frightening prospect. Nicholas Slonimsky dazzles with his piano playing; Hulda Crooks climbs mountains: both are in their 90s. What does science know of their secret?
Geriatric monkeys, rats that live in a version of Disneyland, and chemicals that rejuvenate ageing neurons are helping researchers ensure that we enjoy the wisdom of old age, rather than suffer the tragedy of stroke or senility.

: The Val Lewton Season: Bedlam

starring
Boris Karloff Anna Lee.
This classic from the Val Lewton stable was inspired by a Hogarth print of the notorious
18th-century asylum, St Mary's of Bethlehem. Boris
Karloff plays the sadistic Master Sims , so bent on preserving his niche of power that he arranges to have the troublesome Nell Bowen incarcerated in the asylum to stop her exposing his tyranny. A chilling, superb reconstruction of a hard and pitiless age....

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.
