: Assignment

The Galician Connection
Colombia's cocaine cartels have discovered the weak link in Europe's defences - the rugged coast of Galicia in north-west Spain. Tons of cocaine arriving on ships from South America are off-loaded on to high-speed launches or innocent-looking fishing boats. With the disappearance of EC border checks, once in Galicia the drugs are easily shipped by road to the rest of Europe. Peter Godwin reports. Producer Brian Barr
Editor John Morrison

: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT Reportage Special

Crimes of the Times
Youth crime has reached a record level and is regularly in the headlines, but the views of young people are seldom heard, even though, in many instances, it is the young themselves who are the victims.
In a series of specially shot films, Reportage travels to some of the country's crime hotspots and talks to young people who break the law, in an attempt to discover what motives lie behind their actions.
The programme also includes highlights of crime items from the last series.

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.

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.
