: Gardeners' World

from Barnsdale with Geoff Hamilton and Anne Swithinbank.
It's time to do a number of important jobs in the,garden. Sow exotics like courgettes and also a range of vegetables outside to keep a full pot of homegrown produce throughout the year. Most herbaceous plants need support; there are several methods, some more discreet than others and, for a brighter selection of pot plants later in the year, sow seeds now.

: The Houses Are Full of Smoke

Hugh O'Shaughnessy,
Latin America correspondent of The Observer, introduces Allan Frankovich's acclaimed three-part investigation of the United States's involvement in Central America. 2: El Salvador
In a country the size of Wales and with a population of five-and-a-half million, an estimated 70,000 people have now 'disappeared' or lost their lives in ten years of vicious civil war.
Constructing his film around such incidents of international infamy as the assassination of Archbishop Romero and the murder of four American churchwomen, Frankovich deploys newsreel and interview to devastating effect. He elicits testimony across the political spectrum - from left-wing guerrillas, through State Department spokesmen, to the country's notorious security forces - leaving a picture of a small and once dynamic nation awaiting the assumption to power, next month, of the right-wing ARENA party.

Jazz Types
Second of six programmes. Tommy is only one of five saxophonists in the programme, as his guests are the 29th Street Saxophone Quartet from New York. It used to be unusual for saxes to play without rhythm section accompaniment, but sax quartets are now frequently heard in jazz and the 29th Street are among the best.
Tommy joins the Quartet for two specially-composed pieces; and a Charlie Parker tune becomes the vehicle for an old-fashioned cutting contest.

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.
