: Horizon

Against the Clock
Technology has brought efficiency and convenience 24 hours a day. Airlines, power-stations, and even all-night creches are features of the industrial world. But for those who keep them running, staying awake is a problem. Disasters, from the Space Shuttle explosion to the Clapham rail crash, and countless motorway accidents, are due to human error, brought on by fatigue.
Dr Martin Moore-Ede , author of The 24 Hour Society, reveals a world dozing on the brink of disaster, and discovers new ways of flipping the switches that will keep us alert. Producer John Lynch
Series editor Jana Bennett

: The Hunt for Michael Jackson

When Michael Jackson was first accused of sexual misconduct last year, the tabloid press struck gold. It was the story they had been waiting for: Jackson, "Wacko Jacko", long the subject of unkind speculation, was finally vulnerable.
Whatever the truth of Jackson's personal life, the key factor in the whole affair has been the media's remorseless efforts to keep the story alive. American writer Richard Ben Cramer investigates the methods by which newspapers and television on both sides of the Atlantic have brought new details to light.
British journalists have proven themselves particularly adept at creating new angles on the case, and many have found jobs in America, where their skills are deployed in stimulating speculation and dissent. As the prices paid for stories get higher and higher, will we ever hear the truth? How can celebrities of Jackson's stature defend themselves?

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.
