: Troubleshooter

Sir John Harvey-Jones , one of Britain's most successful and unconventional industrialists, offers candid advice to companies facing major decisions about the future. 1: 'In the NutcracKers....' Sir John is characteristically forthright about the predicament of the toy firm
Tri-ang. Once the world's largest toy manufacturer, its name has since passed from firm to firm. Now operating from a converted mill in Manchester, the current owners would like to relaunch the brand name and make Tri-ang great again. Can they succeed? Producer Robert Thirkell

: The Natural World

Island in the Air. Today it may seem difficult to associate Ethiopia with wildlife. However in the south of Ethiopia a rich variety of animals and plants still flourish, providing a haunting memorial to the fertile landscapes of the country's past. Rising 13,000ft above tropical
African plains, the Bate mountains are an island refuge for unique wildlife: the rarest dog on earth, the Queen of Sheba's antelope, a bizarre giant mole rat and much more. Millions of people also depend on these table mountains for a priceless resource: water. In Ethiopia, conservation must become a vital part of long-term famine prevention.

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.
