: Baby Monthly: What Are You Hoping For?

Having a baby is one of the most life-changing experiences we ever go through but, as all parents know, that's just the start of it. Five mothers and their partners, whose babies were born at the end of 1993, have undertaken to make a video diary of the first 12 months of family life and the results will be shown every month for the rest of the year.
This introductory programme entitled What Are You Hoping For? meets the characters about to embark on the rocky road of parenthood. Next week the cameras are turned on to the babies for the first monthly report.

: The Great Pyramid - Gateway to the Stars

The Great Pyramid of Egypt is one of the world's oldest and most perplexing enigmas, but If writers Robert Bauval and Adrian
Gilbert are to be believed, it may be about to yield many of its secrets.
They claim that the 4,500-year-old pyramid, far from being simply a royal tomb, was an instrument of worship in the stellar cult of the fourth
Egyptian dynasty, and that the precision with which it was constructed was an attempt to re-create heaven on earth.
Presenter Emma Freud meets
Bauval and Gilbert, and talks to experts who have devoted years to the study of the pyramids. Executive producer John Blake

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.
