The Toadskin Spell
Frozen solid in arctic ice, cocooned beneath the desert sands, or erupting through the skin of their mother's back, some frogs and toads seem almost supernatural. From the deadly spells of medieval witches to the miracle cures of modern medicine, the chemical properties of frog- and toadskin have been widely exploited. Kevin Flay 's amazing photography reveals how this seemingly magical amphibian skin is the key to some astonishing behaviour.

: Video Nation

The video diary goes nationwide. Fifty people from all over the country have been equipped with camcorders to film their daily lives. Their recordings will be seen in a series of programmes during the year, building up a unique picture of life in Britain today.

Attitudes to money are the focus of the first fruits of this BBC project, subtitled Money, Money, Money. "I've had it, squandered it, lost it, made it, given it away," says an unemployed executive. A 12-year-old schoolgirl remarks: "I love money - it's my favourite thing."
What emerges is a frank and often surprising insight into the mood of a nation seriously worried about money.

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.
