Tahrir is banned in many countries for its extreme views, and many British

: Scrutiny: MPs in Genes

Eleven MPs from both main parties serving on the Commons' Science and Technology Committee have spent the past year examining advances in genetic research. In the course of their investigation a difference of opinion has developed over whether drug companies should be allowed to claim ownership of genes that they have identified. Most ofthe Conservative committee members believe that patenting genes is necessary in order to attract private investment, while
Labour members question the morality of patenting and its impact on future research. Anne Perkins goes behind the scenes of the committee's work and discovers how MPs react to this moral dilemma.

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.
