We Shall Not Be Moved?
Football faces an uncertain future. Changes are being forced upon it as a result of the Hillsborough disaster two years ago. The most painful is the closure of the terraces that have played such a central role in the culture and history of the game. Many clubs say they cannot afford to develop their grounds to provide more seats. Antonia Higgs reports on whether the clubs and the game can survive such an upheaval. Producer Sandy Smith
Executive producer Peter Lowe

Heart of the Angel
Every day the Angel tube station in London struggles to cope with its load of 15,000 commuters. Overburdened lifts break down; weary travellers lose their tempers. At night, like moles, the 'fluffers' emerge to clean the tracks. Human hair is the main fire hazard. And much of it has been torn out by frustrated staff who try to keep smiling through all the traumas. Producer Molly Dineen Editor Caroline Pick

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.
