Weather followed by Betjeman Metro-Land
Presented by the late Sir John Betjeman.
'Live in Metro-Land' was the slogan in the 1920s and 1930s. It meant buying a new detached or semi-detached house in the desirable residential suburbs built up alongside the Metropolitan Railway. 'The Met', the first steam underground in the world, had bought up the farmland as it journeyed out from London's Baker Street to farthest Bucks, and the houses and gardens it helped to build set the pattern for suburbia everywhere.
In this film Sir John takes a journey through Metro-Land in search of the poetry and variety of its architecture and activities.

: Horizon

Crash
Every two hours someone dies on the road; every two minutes someone is injured. These are shocking figures - or they should be. But we seem to accept 5,000 road deaths every year, while we are horrified by other transport disasters with much less loss of life, like
Clapham or Lockerbie. The real tragedy is that most road casualties need not happen.
Technology, engineering and enforcement of the law could cut the carnage. Why are they not being used?
Horizon investigates a story of delay, complacency and bureaucratic muddle.

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.
