Dangerous Reunions
Since 1976, British adoptees have had the legal right to information that will help them trace their biological relatives. For some it's the beginning of a bewildering and sometimes illegal relationship. They want to make love to their biological brothers, sisters, mothers or fathers. Some commit incest.
What does genetic sexual attraction tell us about the incest taboo and how most of us select our mates?
Patenting Life
Should scientists who genetically engineer a new animal be able to patent it as an invention? A controversial proposal before the European Parliament says they should. Biotechnology companies argue it's necessary to get a financial return. Science writer Colin Tudge asks: Is the profit motive enough of a reason to own life itself?

: Blackeyes

A four-part series written by Dennis Potter.
3: Castles and catwalks and crystal flutes. Success has put a sheen on lovely, pliable Blackeyes. But grimmer shapes are reflected in the high gloss. A lonely death in cold water still beckons to her, and the sick rage of an obsessive cop is no recompense for such a fate. The young man who loves
Blackeyes is still trying to get into the story of her life. If he can, his shy adoration might yet save her. But is he all he seems to be....?

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.
