: Personal Details

A series looking at identity in a changing world, compiled from programmes originally made for the Open University.
Heritage and Identity. The national landscape seems to represent the very essence of being English, expressing better than anything else the heart of national identity.
But what really lies behind the reassuring image of a tranquil and timeless English heritage? Stuart Hall and Patrick Wright visit Lulworth Castle in Dorset and Quarry Bank Cotton Mill outside Manchester to find evidence of the historic forces which shaped the countryside as it is today.
Series producers Sally Angel and Jeremy Cooper

: Columbus and the Age of Discovery

Documentary series on Christopher Columbus to mark the 500th anniversary of his landing in the Americas in 1492. The Columbian Exchange
Both the New World and the Old World have been changed beyond recognition by the animals and plants that
Columbus and his successors carried across the Atlantic.
The horse totally transformed the North American Indians' way of life; cattle created the cowboy culture in both North and South America; the South
American potato made possible a huge boom in Europe's population; and sugar brought both wealth and slavery to Cuba, Jamaica and other
Caribbean countries. Presented by Mauricio Obregon. Producer Graham Chedd 0STEREO

: Hannah and Her Sisters

This Academy Award-winning study of relationships is the first of two films tonight concluding the Woody Allen season.
Starring Woody Allen Michael Caine
Mia Farrow
Everyone relies on Hannah's stability - but, as ever, her strength is to be sorely tested, not least by the actions of her husband Elliot, and her ex-husband the neurotic
Mickey. Through three
Thanksgivings, the intertwined tales of Hannah and her sisters, their lives and loves, family and friends, form a rich and deep portrait of human relationships.

: Video Diaries

The BFI Award-winning series, which gives cameras and training to people to record their own lives.
The Reluctant Mamoushka
Last year Edel O'Brien went to Russia as unpaid chaperone to nine Irish teenage girls beginning their first term at the Perm Ballet School. With no school lessons or activities set up for the girls, and virtually no contact with the Irish organisers, Edel's job soon becomes a nightmare of chaos and frustration. Struggling to look after the group, whose major preoccupations are
Russian boys and chocolate, she tries to combat their boredom and homesickness. Meanwhile, the ballet school seems totally unprepared for its western pupils and more interested in the money they are paying than their dancing abilities.
Edel's diary is a beautiful tribute to ballet, set against the struggle of the Russian people of Perm as communism comes to an end. As the first term draws to a close, she wonders if she can cope with the job. Series producer Bob Long

Jeff Daniels
Like millions of Americans in the Great Depression of the 1930s, Cecilia seeks escapism from the awful facts of life. Her regular refuge is the local cinema. But fantasy and reality blur when dashing Tom Baxter addresses her from the silver screen and a complicated comic romance blooms.

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.
