Peter's Police
Crime is the biggest threat to stability in the new Russia. Tim Sebastian reports from St Petersburg, going behind the scenes with the city's detectives who battle a crime wave of epidemic proportions. He meets the new winners - the mafia chief with a string of expensive cars and a stable of horses, who plans a western-style leisure centre; and the new losers - the old man beaten senseless, and evicted from his flat which was then sold to somebody else. Producer Charles Colville EditorGlynn Jones

: 40 Minutes

Times Remembered
In Radio Times for
1 October 1981 the billing for a new documentary strand called 40 Minutes read: "A series of films portraying issues, institutions and individuals".
Thirteen years and programmes later the series finally ends with this review of 31 of its top stories and memorable moments.
Among tonight's clips are the moving stories of Alison, the disabled girl with a speech impediment who triumphed over her handicaps and married a vicar, and the English housewife who tried to find out what happened to her Jewish mother during the Holocaust.
Also featured is a scene from Home from the Hill, which followed how Colonel Hilary Hook coped with moving to Britain after a lifetime in Africa - many will remember his parting shots at his chandelier. And another memorable moment included in this retrospective is from Whose House Is It Anyway when a furious Rochdale man delivered a down to earth message to his council as they evicted him from his home.
Producer John Pitman
Series editors Roger Mills, Edward Mirzoeff , Caroline Pick and Paul Watson

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.
