Who Do They Think They Are?
When Australian Prime Minister
Paul Keating criticised his nation's "cultural cringe" towards Britain, it caused a storm. It also sparked off a serious debate about Australia's identity. Should it loosen the ties with Britain, become a republic, and accept a future more closely bound to its Asian neighbours? Michael Charlton returns to his native country and bravely asks the locals - who do they think they are? Producer Subniv Babuta Editor John Morrison

: The Racing Game

Second of a six-part documentary series that tells the inside story of horse racing in this country. And They're Off. As the 1991 flat racing season opens, Luca Cumani aims to win the trainers' championship for the first time. On the Newmarket gallops his horses are going well. Most of them belong to big players in the racing game like Sheikh Mohammed. But he has
"hobby" owners, too, and their relationship with Cumani resembles that of an anxious and ambitious parent with a public school housemaster. Producer Liz Molyneux

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.
