: Adultery

A series in which Ray Gosling talks to people of all ages and all types as he takes a serious look at the issues surrounding adultery.
Revenge. When Lady Sarah Moon found out that her baronet husband Sir Peter was having an affair with a woman in the local village, she took her revenge. She cut the arms off his Savile Row suits, threw two litres of white paint over his car, and distributed the contents of his wine cellar around the village. Lady
Moon's action hit the national headlines, and she has since become a chat show celebrity, dispensing wisdom to other victims of adultery, and set up a support group. But the affair has left Sarah Moon virtually penniless at the age of 55. Ray Gosling finds out how she is coming to terms with the havoc that adultery sometimes leaves in its wake.

Michel Foucault : Beyond Good and Evil
Another chance to see the edition that explores the strange story of the life and death of cult French philosopher Michel Foucault , who died in 1984. Foucault questioned all that we take to be normal and natural in modern society by examining what lies beyond, in the realms of madness, sickness and perversion. But, as Ben Woolley reports, his interest in such themes was more than merely academic. Director David Stewart

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.
