A seven-part documentary series on Christopher Columbus, to mark the 500th anniversary of his landing in the Americas.
Columbus World. Born into a weaver's family in Genoa in 1451, Columbus came of age at a time of change and anxiety across Europe. The rise of Islam threatened vital trade links with China and the East
Indies, and western merchants knew they needed to find a new sea route to the Far East.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
