New Lamps for Old
We live in an age of mass media communication. The type of stories we listen to is more likely to be twice-weekly television soap opera than epic tales told by the fireside.
This edition looks at the newest and oldest forms of story-telling. In a film from Northern Ireland, pupils using their school TV studio prove themselves to be anything but passive consumers of the media.
And with the recent revival in the oral tradition of story-telling, Martin Young asks whether princesses and dragons are still relevant to children in the sophisticated 1980s.

Perils of the Deep
It takes a tragedy on the scale of Piper Alpha to remind us of the human price to be paid for oil and gas. But some North Sea workers are taking daily risks that never hit the headlines. Divers in the alien underwater world are like astronauts, undergoing physical changes, simply to get to work. New research is revealing unsuspected damage to their nervous systems. Doctors believe commercial pressures may partly be to blame. Despite fears of losing their jobs, divers and their wives are now speaking out.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
