: Open Space

The series where the public can make programmes under their own editorial control. Across the Water
This year, around 40,000 young Irish people will cross the water to England, the latest of many generations forced to leave home to find work and another whose education and energy will largely be lost to Ireland.
This film, made by four Irish people living in London, looks at some of the contributions made to life in this country by the Irish and follows one young man as he leaves Galway to start a new life in London.

: Prophets and Loss

A programme about climate change and our future on the planet - a future in which nature seems, at last, to be calling our bluff. The 'prophets' - who include scientists Carl Sagan , Paul Ehrlisch and Steven Schneider , actor and environmentalist Robert Redford , Unep's Mustafa Tolba and others from
Europe, the Third World and the Soviet Union - look squarely at the consequences of our behaviour towards the planet and suggest solutions: to redirect military spending into a global war against the destruction of the planet; to develop energy efficiency (a trillion-dollar-a-year industry in itself); and to deal with the crippling inequality of Third World debt. They reveal a truth of which we are only just aware - that we are indeed 'one world' and that carbon dioxide knows no national boundaries.

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.
