Naked Washington
George Bush's press secretary
Marlin Fitzwater turns reporter to examine Washington's deteriorating relationship with the press.
The relentless pressures within the White House have long been recognised as making it a graveyard for marriages and personal relationships, but those working in government have come increasingly under the scrutiny of the press. Whereas Kennedy's indiscretions were never publicised at the time, three decades later Clinton finds himself accused of womanising and financial mismanagement.
Fitzwater asks what has gone wrong - is it the fault of the politicians, or has the press become too vindictive?

: 40 Minutes

Andrew Weston-Webb used to be a successful executive with a family and lots of money. Now he's known as the Battersea Bush Man, living entirely on what other people throw away. He scavenges for his food outside markets and makes sculptures from other people's rubbish.
During the filming of this documentary he met an old school foe at a reunion dinner and was forced to re-evaluate his life. He discovered that although it was the break-down of his marriage that prompted him to walk away from his affluent lifestyle, his feelings of "separateness" from the world started in childhood. And it was the behaviour of his parents - in particular his father - which led to him to reject a "normal" life to find some sense of self.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
