City at Sea
Seafaring is what established the City as a financial centre, and 200 years on the City is still the centre of the international shipping trade. But maritime centres overseas believe they can mount a serious challenge, and as our own merchant fleet continues to decline some say the City could become vulnerable.

: Three of a Kind: Chief Constables

Presented by Jeremy Isaacs.
Professionals wield power. What motivates them? What attitudes and ideas lurk behind their job titles? To whom are they accountable? Chief Constables with Geoffrey Dear Ian Oliver and Brian Hayes. Tonight, Jeremy Isaacs confronts the professional world of three Chief Constables - West Midlands, central Scotland and Surrey. What has been their route to the top? By what codes do they do their job? At a time when confidence in the police is at a low ebb, are they our servants or our masters? Just what are their options for the future in a fast-changing world?

: Second Sight

Women first filmed in the 60s tell the story of their lives over the past 20 years. Jill Woollaston
In 1966, Jill Woollaston was a consultant psychiatrist married to a Labour MP, Arthur Palmer , with two teenage daughters. She was an early feminist - one of the pioneers of the working woman, balancing the demands of career and family. Today, Jill, in her 70s, is retired. She is still happily married and still a feminist. She has five grandchildren. In this film, she looks back over her life, with the help of her family, and faces the prospect of growing old.

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.
