The Night of the Long Knives with Michael Cockerell July is traditionally a dangerous month for Cabinet ministers. In July 1962,
Harold Macmillan sacked his Chancellor of the Exchequer and a third of his other
Cabinet colleagues - some of his oldest political friends.
Did the normally unflappable Macmillan panic? Was there, as Macmillan claimed, a plot to overthrow him and, if so, who was behind it?
Using rare archive film alongside interviews with Macmillan's closest confidants and victims of his purge, Michael Cockerell considers new evidence for this unprecedented act of political butchery.

: Under the Sun

Celso and Cora
An intimate and moving portrait of a young Filipino couple trying to survive in the slums of Manila. Celso and Cora are sharply aware of the injustices they have to suffer but there is no self pity as they describe the problems they have to face bringing up two young children on what little they make selling cigarettes outside hotels and discos.
Film-maker Gary Kildea comes to know them as friends as they give him a glimpse of a side of Manila tourists rarely see. In conditions of extreme poverty, Celso and Cora somehow manage to get through with dignity and humour.

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.
