: Further Abroad with Jonathan Meades

The Truth about Porkies. Pigs have a bad name - we talk about "filthy pigs", "piggingout", "rotten swine", rooms "looking like pigsties". And the term
"pig", when applied to the police, isn't normally meant as a compliment.
Jonathan Meades visits his favourite beast in pigsties, back gardens, showgrounds and butchers' shops and sings the praises of an animal you can take to your heart.... literally.
Director Russell England; Series producer David F
Turnbull Rpt Stereo Subtitled .............

: Top Gear

Steve Berry visits the East Los Angeles Car Show forthe low-down on Lowriders - a youth movement which embraces thousands of people from the city's large Hispanic community. In this unique form of car culture American cars from the 1 940s to the present day are extravagantly decorated with ornate gold-plated wheels, acres of velourand custom-designed murals. Deep-marine batteries are loaded in the boot and the suspension is ripped out and replaced with hydraulic jacks that mean the cars can bunny hop down the road on demand. And it's not just the cars - there's the lifestyle, clothes and music to match. Plus, Tony Mason reporting on the RAC Rally.

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.

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.
