A. James Manchin marches down the streets of West
Virginia to the beat of his own drum. Espousing the virtues of patriotism, family and cleanliness he hands out autographed dollar bills seeking re-election as State Treasurer; 'Sure I'm a showboat and a ham; I'm in government.'

: 40 Minutes

The way we live now Violent
Barlinnie Prison, Glasgow. Two young criminals talk about a man they punched, kicked, dragged by the hair, tried to throw over a bridge. It was an unprovoked, unmotivated assault.
Alan Finney is now serving his second life sentence. He stabbed a bus crew, but can't explain why. Yet he's outraged when old ladies get mugged. Wayne is 22, black, and a victim. He was beaten up at a London nightspot - for no reason that he, or the police, can discover. He's lost an eye; he's also lost his confidence. Alexandra Connor was attacked and nearly strangled. Thanks to her assailants, she says, she's become a successful painter and novelist.
Senseless violence is hard to anticipate and prevent. Can it be understood?

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.
