: First Sight: Lives on the Line

This week an inquiry begins into yet another train crash - five people died at Cowden, Kent, in October when two trains were involved in a head-on collision. After the King's Crossfire and the Clapham rail disaster, government inquiries recommended numerous safety measures. More than half a decade later, many have yet to be implemented. Rail operators claim that some of those plans are simply not cost effective, even though many of our European partners have them. First Sight asks how much a passenger's life is worth and why executives prefer to pay that price rather than invest in certain safety measures.
A phone-in discussion of the issues raised in the programme follows immediately on BBC Radios Berkshire, Kent, Oxford and GLR. If you would like to take part, call [number removed] after the programme.

: Top Gear

Within the next decade, South Korea could be making many of our basic cars. Marques like Ssangyong,
Daewoo, Hyundai and Kia may not be big names on the British car market in 1994 but they seem to be poised for massive expansion. They already make nearly two million vehicles a year between them, significantly more than Britain's motor industry, and even the mighty Japanese are worried by Korea's manufacturing potential. But this rapidly advancing nation has some quaint ways of doing business - like the way customers are actually encouraged to do their own repairs. Top Gear road tests the Hyundai Accent and looks at some of the extraordinary ways Koreans use cars. Producer Jon Bentley ; Executive producer

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.
