: The Victorian Kitchen

Luncheon
Lunch in Victorian households was 'an unceremonious and inconsequent meal'. It usually consisted of cold meats and hot dishes that wouldn't spoil if left standing. Ruth Mott makes a galantine, poached eggs on spinach and a gooseberry tart, while Alison makes lunch for the staff - which in large households meant 12 or more people. Mid-morning, Harry Dodson arrives for a cup of tea and chats over old times with Ruth. Peter
Thoday looks at the life of bestselling cookery writer Isabella Beeton.
Associate producer JENNIFER DAVIES Producer KEITH SHEATHER BBC Bristol
• MUSIC: the music for 'The
Victorian Kitchen is is by Paul Reade ; the theme is included on 'The World of BBC TV Themes', available from record shops on LP, cassette and CD.

: Secret Nature

Beyond the Barbed Wire
Andrew Cooper explores the natural history of Ministry of Defence land. Some of the most beautiful parts of the countryside which are used as battlegrounds are home to many rare and endangered plants and animals. From the wilderness of Dartmoor to an island seabird colony in the sights of the Navy's big guns, some extraordinary wildlife survives. Yet the real surprise is found on an army gunnery range in Dorset, where an unspoilt valley teems with life under the protection of the latest tanks and armoured vehicles.

: Alexei Sayle's Stuff

A series of six programmes. 3: My Pal Mozart Dear Radio Times,
I am a senior citizen struggling to make ends meet on a small fixed grin, and am unable to get out of the house these days due to the front door being bricked up by Friends of the Earth. As such I watch a great deal of television and take particular exception to Alexei Sayle 's Stuff. If Mr Sayle finds life here so disagreeable, may I suggest he moves to England, where totalitarian government, lack of human rights and a disastrous economy would really give him something to moan about.
Mrs Martina Kalashnikov ,
Smolensk.
ALEXEI SAYLE replies: Who gives a damn what you think?
Featuring Alexei Sayle with Angus Deayton

Crack Doctors
Major Mary Maniscalco -Theberge is a surgeon in the US Army. To gain experience of treating gunshot wounds she's been posted to a city with the highest murder rate in the USA - Washington DC. America's capital is a battleground for competing drug dealers. The cause of the escalating violence is the new drug crack. Mary has been assigned to a special trauma centre for the seriously injured. It was set up by an Englishman, Dr Howard Champion. Out on the streets federal agents raid crack houses. And a crack dealer shot five times gives an insider's view of Washington's violence.

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.
