: There Now Follows....

McDonald Hobley's introduction of "Sir
Stifford Crapps" seems to have been lost to the nation. But he suitably begins this revealing gallop through four decades of the best and worst of British political broadcasts by announcingthe first-ever such address, by Liberal spokesman Lord Samuel, who forgets his words, shuffles his notes and gets faded out. Jimmy Savile fails to fix it for Jeremy Thorpe , Margaret Thatcher unveils her remodelled voice,
Corin Redgrave speaks up for the Workers Revolutionary Party and John Cleese for the SDP, while film director Hugh Hudson candidly recalls the making of the so-called Kinnock - the Movie. In 40 years the relationship between politician and TV camera has changed from the suspicious and stilted to the slick manoeuvring of image and "sound bite". Narrated by Vivian White.

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.
