: Michael Moore's TV Nation

In 1989 Michael Moore made Roger and Me, a low-budget satirical account of his attempts to track down the chairman of General
Motors to confront him over job losses in his home town of Flint in Michigan. The film made him a minor celebrity.
Now Moore goes global with this six-part magazine series - also to be shown by NBC in America - which he describes as having "a subversive edge - and a sense of humour". In it he casts an irreverent eye over contemporary affairs, including going to Russia to buy the missiles that were once pointed at his home town!
In this first programme he meets with Serbian and Croatian diplomats over a pizza to settle "this whole war thing". Producers Michael Moore : Kathleen Glynn Executive producer Jeremy Gibson

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.
