: Inside Out

Two perspectives on the same institution.
These two films look at the life of the men serving with the 1st Battalion Light Infantry in Berlin. The enlisted men and the officers give their views, sometimes contrasting, sometimes contradictory, of life in the modern British Army. Ticking with the Crow
A film made by the 'crow' - other ranks. Having just completed a two-year tour in Northern Ireland, where a number of their friends were killed or injured, traumatic memories remain.
The Officers' Mess
A film made with a group of officers. Settling into a new posting is never easy and while the tensions of Northern Ireland remain, the officers have extra problems - the retraining of 'their boys' as they come to terms with the new freedom that
Berlin offers.

: Blackeyes

Afour-part series written by Dennis Potter.
'Blackeyes is my professional name. Well, it will be,' says the beautiful girl on the bottom rung of the silken ladder to stardom as a fashion model. But the story of her journey across the glossy catwalk floors has actually been told to
77-year-old Maurice James Kingsley. The old man has written an unexpectedly successful novel full of sexy revelations. But he has stolen the details of Blackeyes's career from the real experiences of his niece
Jessica. Jessica is furious.
She is going to try to rewrite sly old uncle's book. She needs to punish him. Trouble is, Jessica can't write ... and across the way someone is looking through her window.

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.
