starring
Duncan Macrae Adrienne Corri and Jean Anderson with Harry and Davy, two luckless orphans, taken into a Nova Scotia homestead, find the atmosphere as bleak as the surrounding countryside.
They long for affection and - most of all - a dog of their own. Denied everything, they resort to kidnapping - and a small baby is named
'Rover'... This enchanting film is by turns moving and comic and ends as all good fairy tales should.

Smart Weapons
Killer missiles fly across the battlefield, seek their target, and then strike. Rolling rocket mines hunt down tanks all on their own. Fibre optic networks detect and report intruders. Such
'smart weapons' rely on new technologies that are revolutionising conventional warfare. Using computers, they can strike deep into enemy territory, and destroy targets that until now were only threatened by atomic weapons. So they could make tactical nuclear weapons obsolete - and signal the beginning of a new hi-tech arms race.

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.
