r Satirical historical romance starring Gerard Philipe
Gina Lollobrigida
Fleeing a shotgun wedding, the happy-go-lucky Fanfan is persuaded to join the army of Louis XV by the recruiting officer's daughter. She tells him that his destiny is to marry the king's daughter. His acts of derring-do bring him love and honour. He promptly rescues the king's daughter and Madame Pompadour from coach robbers and wins the princess's hand in marriage. Honour is his too when he almost single-handedly defeats the Austrian army, by which stage all his dreams have come true. In French with English subtitles.

: Over the Edge

First of six programmes that present an alternative view of intriguing and challenging subjects, made by BBCtv's
Disability Programmes Unit. A Cry in the Cosmos
When people power forced the collapse of the Berlin Wall in November 1989, a steamroller of change was launched in eastern Europe. Since then many of the early hopes and expectations have crumbled; racist attacks on refugees, foreign "guest workers" and disabled people have led to fears of a resurgence of the radical right. But many in the disability movement warn that the threat from the liberal left under the guise of euthanasia and assisted suicide is just as real as the threat of the neo Nazis.

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.
