The History of TV-am
First shown in BBC2's evening of TV Hell last year, this is an insiders' account of the troubled history of what turned out to be Britain's most commercially successful television company. Launched on a wave of high ideals in 1983, it suffered boardroom power struggles and near financial collapse but was rescued first by the arrival of Greg Dyke , then by Australian TV magnate Bruce Gyngell. Ironically, with its troubles seemingly behind it, TV-am lost its franchise last year. Raymond Snoddy reports, with cameo appearances by Loyd Grossman and Roland Rat. Producer Renee Knight

: Horizon

The Electronic Frontier
In the 15 years since the first personal computer, the industry has grown faster than any in history. A software baron, Bill Gates of Microsoft, is one of America's richest men.
But the key to future profits is something portable and friendly - and linked to a stream of digital information. From the computer in our pocket we will tap into everything from electronic mail to airline schedules, from electronic pets to digital reproductions of the paintings in the Louvre. This film asks where Gates and his competitors are leading the consumer. Do we need endless information - or do they just need to sell it to us?

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.
