Pobol y Cwm comes to BBC2 every week from Monday to Thursday. With the aid of English subtitles, BBC2 viewers can follow this Welsh-language soap - joining it nine months behind the current series in Wales - and the Deri Arms could become as famous as the Vic and the Woolpack. "It has a fiercely dedicated following in Wales," says series producer Glenda Jones, "but it doesn't fly the flag of Welshness. The human dramas and humour are universal."
In the first episode, chef Eileen leaves husband Denzil to put their baby twins to bed, while news spreads about head teacher Beth.

Billy Connolly travels to Rome In the first of _ six-part series looking at the extraordinary and little-known history of Scottish art. In the 18th century, society gentlemen undertook the Grand Tour, a cultural trip around
Europe whereby they completed their education and, in some cases, found artistic inspiration.
Many Scottish artists, among them Allan Ramsay ,

In Edinburgh, the "Athens of the North", native artists were producing an extraordinary quantity of first-rate work. Director/Producer Douglas Rae An Ecosse production for BBCtv

Targets. Modern armies demand the most effective weapons: rifles with more firepower, fragmentation weapons, to injure as many as possible, landmines to scatter from the air, lasers to blind the enemy. Now there is an international campaign to frame laws of war limiting the design and use of weapons aimed at "soft targets". Producer Martin Freeth ; Editor Jana Bennett

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.
