: Raising the Roof

How 1,000 people worked round the clock to build two houses in three days. Rick Ball tells the challenging story of a man with a vision and a woman with a cause who joined forces to provide homes for two needy families. In scenes reminiscent of the film Witness hundreds of craftsmen raise the frames on two houses locked together not with screws and nails, but by superb carpentry, muscle-power and determination. In Pennsylvania the powerful combination of craft skills and community spirit fulfils the dreams of both the Timber Framers Guild and the volunteer army of Habitat for Humanity.

: Designs on Europe

Europe's towns and cities are being transformed. This series of films, each made by a different European country, profiles six very different architects who are contributing to the look of the new Europe.
Denmark: Henning Larsen. When Larsen won an international competition for the new opera house in Compton Verney ,
Warwickshire, he was almost unknown in this country. But his design of the truly spectacular Ministry of Foreign Affairs at
Riyadh in Saudi Arabia has been described as a masterpiece and a turning point in 20th-century architecture. His libraries, schools and university buildings in Scandinavia had already shown him to be one of Europe's most confident and inventive designers and a grandmaster in the use of light. Narrated by Patrick Malahide. Director Pi Michael

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.
