: Rhodes around Britain

It may be called flaming June outside, but on a chilly day at a remote shooting lodge on the Scottish moors a hearty meal is what's needed.
Television's newest culinary star Gary Rhodes starts his research into local produce with a clootie dumpling - one element of the serious fry-up that is a Scottish trucker's breakfast. From there he samples the rich flavour of grouse as well as cranachan, a Scottish speciality made with a wicked combination of raspberries and whisky.
Sporting a pair of thigh-high waders, Rhodes tries to catch one of his main ingredients from the River Spey. But he has more success in the kitchen where a warming ham and vegetable soup is followed by his famous salmon fish cakes served with lemon butter sauce, and then by summer pudding made with Tayside raspberries.

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.
