: The Great Rift

Out of the Ashes
Second of a three-part series. Clouds of ash from the Masai
Mountain of God drift over the Rift Valley creating the Serengeti plains. Gazelles, zebras, and wildebeest run the gauntlet of wild dogs, cheetahs, and lions forming the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth. And among the millions of wild animals the Masai people graze their cattle. Rain which brings life to the Plains collects in the Rift
Valley to form lakes. Some are shallow, others so deep they become oceans in miniature with sparkling coral reef-like communities.

: Grandmaster Clash

Last month in the Greek city of Salonica, chess players from 127 nations came together to compete in the 28th Chess Olympics. Comedian and writer
Stephen Fry - a chess fan of long standing - went along to observe the proceedings. His wry and revealing report casts a surprising light on a game that's sometimes seen as a rarefied intellectual pursuit but which nowadays seethes with bitter rivalries.

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.
