: The Great Famine: Emigration

One hundred and fifty years ago, famine ravaged Ireland when the potato crop was destroyed by blight. Over a million people fled the horrors of starvation and disease by taking ships to Britain, Canada, and, most of all, to the United States.
In the second of two programmes,
Dublin-born writer Ian Gibson tells how thousands of the Irish poor died on board the "coffin ships" that carried them across the Atlantic to the fever sheds of Quebec and the slums of New York. He explores some of the myths of famine history, finding them to be more complicated than on superficial examination, and explains how the bitter experience of the mass emigration has shaped Irish-American support for nationalist causes, from the Fenians to the Irish Republican Army.

: Michael Moore's TV Nation

An eclectic mix of the weird and the wonderful from America and beyond.
Tonight, the show's "Love Squad" tests the theory that the most productive method of defusing the hatred of extremist organisations is to overwhelm them with affection. The Ku Klux Klan are the unwitting first subjects in the experiment.
Plus: the case of a law-abiding young black man who has undergone police questioning no fewer than 20 times; a campaign to revive inner cities through the construction of aquaria; and a brotherhood that prefers trips to funfairs to visiting the rifle range.

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.
