: Video Diaries

A new series of films in which documentary tradition is turned on its head when the subjects of the programmes point the cameras at themselves. Each 'diarist' has used a sophisticated but simple-to-use video camera to make a video about their lives.
In the first, successful young novelist Robert Wilson goes home to Belfast after six years of voluntary exile in England. By turns hilarious, miserable, angry and hopeful his 'diary' is a refreshingly honest account of his tribulations as he asks himself and his friends, 'Is there a worthwhile future in Belfast?'
Series producer Jeremy Gibson Producer Michael MacCormack Community Programme Unit
* INFORMATION: if you would like to make your own video diary, write to 'Video Diaries', Community Programme Unit, BBCtv, London W12 7RJ.

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.
