: Floyd's American Pie

'Rock 'n' roll is just like cooking,' says our shy and retiring gastronaut. 'You get a group of basic ingredients for seasoning, like peppers, celery and onions, you throw in some hot spices and a few bits of meat, and you get something delicious.
Someone in Memphis did just that with music. He took a little jazz, a great dollop of blues, stirred in with gospel and sprinkled liberally with country and western, and out popped rock 'n' roll - probably the most powerful influence on our lives since the cordless shaver.'

: The Road to War

Last of eight programmes written and narrated by Charles Wheeler. Global War
Poland suffered more than any other country in the Second World War. One in six Poles died at the hands of the Nazi occupiers, and the Jewish population was wiped out. But Poland was only the trigger for a war which in two years was to engulf the world. Using rare and remarkable film from the conflict, Global War seeks to answer some of the most perplexing puzzles of the war: why did Hitler call off the invasion of Britain and turn instead on the Soviet Union? And why did he declare war on the USA in the winter of 1941? This film ties together the separate strands of the series and tells the tragic story of how a local conflict developed into a global war.

: Bette Davis in The Nanny

continuing the tribute to the legendary Hollywood star, appearing here as Nanny.
Why does 10-year-old Joey Fane have such an implacable hatred of Nanny, the mainstay of the household? He will neither sleep in the room she has prepared for him, nor eat the food she has cooked.
Bette Davis as the trusted English nanny maintains a sweetly smiling confidence in spite of the distinctly odd behaviour of the Fane family. But the sinister atmosphere suggests that nothing is quite as it seems ...

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.
