: The Last Launch

A six-part documentary series. They Grew Up with Ships
Just before Christmas 1988, the Government announced the closure of North East
Shipbuilders. Two thousand Sunderland men were made redundant, and the River Wear's 600-year history of shipbuilding ended.
This first programme reports on the shock of the announcement - and on the launch, five days later, of the very last ship to be built on the Wear.

: Made In Latin America

An eight-part series.
1: Dreams of a New World Ever since Christopher
Columbus landed in the New World in 1492, Latin
America's extraordinary reality has often been confused with images and myths projected on to it from outside.
With leading historians, film-makers and writers, including Carlos Fuentes ,
Eduardo Galeano and Gabriel Garcia Marquez , this film explores some of those images and dreams, with their frequent and opposite brutal realities, from the Conquest and the search for El Dorado , to the mythologised figure of Simon Bolivar and the 19th century struggle for independence.

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.
