: Facing Up to AIDS

In the Shadow of the Test
John is 30 and lives with his girlfriend in London. But while on holiday in Thailand he had sex with other women. Now he has decided to do something most of us would be afraid to do. He's going for an HIV test.
From John and others who have taken the test we learn about the fear that surrounds testing and how to deal with it. We hear of problems with life insurance that can follow the test. And, efforts to make doctors more sympathetic. Film editor MICHEL CLERFEUlLLE Producer CHRIS LENT (e)

: Floyd on France

Famous for its fruits de mer, fish soups and crepes,
Brittany has long been a favourite region for Keith Floyd. But while Brittany and Cornwall share a common heritage, it's the French who have really got their act together and devour almost everything that comes from the sea.
Floyd cooks a roast monkfish and one of the most famous of all Breton dishes, a kig ha farz, surprisingly based on beef, flour and vegetables. Film editor CHRIS WARING Producer DAVID PRITCHARD BBC South West (R)

: Out of the Doll's House

Third of eight films exploring the way women's lives have changed in the 20th century. Thinking of England
'I'd never seen a man in the nude. I'd got seven brothers and I didn't know they'd even got ankles.'
In the days when chaste respectability was every girl's goal, a veil of silence cloaked all sexual matters. Girls were told that being alone with a man was dangerous but not why. Few were told the facts of life.
Sixty years on, innocence is no longer seen as a virtue.
From the days of chaperones through the swinging 60s to the post AIDS era, frank reminiscences interwoven with contemporary documentary and feature films chart the course of the changing moral climate and the influences behind it. Producer NIKKI CHEETHAM Series producer

America's mother-daughter pageant, in which the sweetest of sweet sentiments are exchanged, and the make-up cracks with emotion.

Simon Hoggart , talks by satellite from Washington about latter-day gung-ho hero President George Bush , while in the studio is the true voice of sanity, internationalist Peter Ustinov.

: One Day....

An intimate view from dawn till night of one person's day. Ellie Laine
The comedienne is no longer the teller of refined stories. The genteel touch has been replaced by the fully frontal on both ears and eyes. Breasts and the pride of men are now the butt producing the comic's daily corn.
Ellie Laine successfully exploits both. Glamorous, armed with a wit that brings tears to the eyes of men and a smile to the taxman, every late night is the cash rich end of just One Day ...

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.
