: The Money Programme

An American Fightback If you go looking for an American presence in consumer electronics, it is hard to find. The Japanese have all but wiped it out.
Now the few manufacturers that remain are calling for co-ordinated action, led by the Government, to get back in the race.
The key to their strategy is a new role for the US government, providing not just finance, but what critics say amounts to planning. But they have political support. So is America, under
President Bush, on the verge of a new industrial policy, and how damaging would that be to the free market ethic here?

Peter Seabrook and Alan Titchmarsh look back over this year's Chelsea Flower Show. Visitors and exhibitors came from across the world to watch and provide four days of entertainment and the best blooms in the world. Many came in search of gold medals, many left disappointed, but they all made their mark on the Royal Horticultural Society's premier show.

: Another Way of Telling

Views of Photography with John Berger , Jean Mohr Concluding this series questioning the nature and practice of photography,
John Berger examines the notion of constructing a photographic poem.
Jean Mohr visits his friend Marcel, who herds his 50 cows on the high pastures of the French Alps. At Marcel's request Jean takes colour pictures and he considers his dilemma when photographing old people, alongside the insights that can be gained from self-portraiture. Together with John Berger he reflects on the human story behind
A Fortunate Man, their book about a country doctor, and Berger evaluates the results and discoveries of his photographic workshop held last June in Finland. Producer ANNA RIDLEY Director JOHN CHRISTIE

The Thing from Another World starring Kenneth Tobey Margaret Sheridan. When an alien spaceship crashes in the Arctic wastes, a nearby army unit attempts to save the craft before it sinks beneath the surface. All they save is an eight-foot-high creature.... In captivity the 'thing' is found to live on blood and to be capable of self-multiplying. It is also seemingly indestructible and ready to take over the world.
This classic fantasy remains one of the most exciting thrillers in movie history.

: Grand Prix

Mexican Grand Prix
With two wins out of three races the private battle between the McLaren drivers continues. In Mexico last year, Alain Prost led from start to finish with team-mate Ayrton Senna second.
Currently they are equal first in the Drivers World
Championship. But look out for Martin Brundle. He's the man in form and his fine drive for Brabham at Monaco means that all five of the British drivers have scored points this season. Commentators

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.
