: Taking Liberties

A series of seven films presented by David Jessel. 6: Cold Comfort
Joshua [text removed] was born with severe brain damage caused by listeria. He is now blind, and unlikely ever to walk unaided. His parents Bill and Vivien argue that they should have been warned earlier about the danger from listeria in cheeses and cook-chilled foods. Too late for Joshua, a Government Food Hazard Warning was issued a year ago - but many pregnant women are still not getting the advice they need to prevent and treat listeriosis.

: The Lane

Further On Up the Road
Su Pollard visits a pub off the Lane because she loves the atmosphere. But soon, they say, it will be like San Francisco, 'sweet as candy, with cobbled streets and fake gas lamps'.
Charlie Brandt , a local artist, thinks it is a travesty; the Harvey sisters know what happened in Wapping -
'outsiders have taken over'.
Even Richard MacCormac , architect of the Spitalfields development scheme, has reservations about the changes. Jocasta Innes browses Brick Lane market before it is too late and Penny, the transvestite and artist's model, is on the overnight train bound for the Edinburgh Festival, oblivious to it all.

: Design Sense

Five films on the relationship between design and the senses. 5: Smell
Air conditioning removes odours from office and home; microwave cooking deprives our kitchens of most food smells. But smell can return to us in other ways: in the design of scents and soaps; in museums like York's Viking Centre; as group therapy with old people; and in the treatment of coma patients.

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.
