: One Small Step After One Small Step

How do you top a trip to
I the Moon? Twelve astronauts have walked on the Moon's surface but some of them came down to earth with a bump.
"It wasn'tthe experience of flying to the Moon that changed my life, it was coming back to people who now expected different things of me ... people like to build up heroes, but then they think you're too perfect and they have to take you apart," says Buzz Aldrin , the second man to step on to the Moon, but who fell into depression and alcohol addiction after the Apollo missions.
Aldrin - now redeemed by the love of a good woman - is one of five former astronauts who talk about their lives in this third programme to mark the 25th anniversary of the first Moon landing. Others have discovered different forms of redemption: Charley Duke has turned to God; Al Bean paints lunar landscapes complete with a sprinkling of genuine moondust; Ed Mitchell has founded an institute devoted to psychokinesis and ESP; Pete Conrad has become a steer-wrestling rancher and part-time rocket scientist working on a plans for commercial flights to the Moon.

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.
