Duke Frederick first planted an arboretum. Since 1932, the present owner Count Lennart Bernadotte has cultivated a floral wonderland. For the hundreds of thousands of visitors who pay homage to Mainau, these gardens have become a gardening Mecca. A WGBHtv production Producer RUSS MORASH

In the first of six programmes, Michael Buerk rediscovers the city where he was brought up. He tells how a market town mushroomed into the workshop of the world, and of the extremes of poverty and prosperity this caused. Producer DAVID NELSON

: Open Space

The Market Will Decide
The Government tells us that in their free enterprise boom economy we've never had it so good. But many find themselves getting poorer, not richer: people like
Bernadette Kendell , from an estate near Halifax, who is so desperate for money she's made Christmas crackers at home for 30 pence an hour; or Flo Udoh , a pensioner from
London, who has to resort to putting potatoes in tinned soup as a main meal of the day - people who've been left behind by market forces, yet whose day-to-day struggle is affected by events and decisions beyond their control.

: Top Gear

Next Sunday a beautifully restored 1907 Itala sets out to repeat an epic expedition from the pioneering days of motoring. In that year, the same car won the famous Peking-Paris race by three weeks. William Woollard tried it out in Turin, before it left for China.
In 1989, a Range Rover might prove a more appropriate choice for such a trip. Chris Goffey compares this latest model with the best Japanese competition, the new V6-engined Mitsubishi Shogun. At 110 mph sideways over slippery dirt on slick tyres, Tiff Needell reports on his initiation into the sport of rallycross at the British Grand Prix.

: Taking Liberties

Eight films in which David Jessel takes up the cases of people whose lives have been shattered by injustice. 2.Awake and in Pain 'It's like being buried alive
. If I'd have died it would have been an easy out.'
There are three million operations performed in Britain's hospitals every year. Tonight's film exposes one of surgery's better kept secrets - that modern anaesthetic techniques can go wrong - and some patients undergoing surgery are fully conscious, yet powerless to move, cry or draw attention to their agony. Doctors say it rarely happens, but as Taking Liberties shows, their attitude often adds to the patients' injuries.

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.
