: Meat: Pig lgnorant

In the last of the series, Derek Cooper investigates the meat of the future.

Chickens with fewer feathers, pigs with chicken genes to make them grow bigger, sheep with plant genes to make them pest resistant - is genetic engineering the next wave in meat production? While scientists believe these processes will result in cheaper, tastier and healthier meat, their work is still shrouded in secrecy. This programme, which contains explicit sequences demonstrating artificial insemination techniques, reveals what the farmyard of the future could look like, and talks to people on both sides of the fence.

: The Car's the Star: The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud

Last in the series on modern car classics.

Back in 1955 when it was launched, few vehicles could command the absolute authority of the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud. Each car weighed two tons and took three months to build. With an interior like a stateroom and a bonnet like a croquet pitch, it was the closest you could get to a car in the style of a country house. But the Silver Cloud was never the sole preserve of the aristocracy. Quentin Willson meets some of its famous owners, including Barbara Cartland and Jimmy Savile.

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.
