: The Day That Changed My Life

The first of six programmes in which people recall an extraordinary experience that altered their world for ever.
Making Waves. Lesley Morris had always dreamt of being a Wren in the Royal Navy. She joined up when she was 17, but the dream soon turned sour.
She felt undermined, humiliated and sexually harassed, and on 28 February 1995 she tried to commit suicide. When she was subsequently discharged, she took the Navy to an industrial tribunal and was awarded damages for sexual discrimination. This programme explores her attempts to regain her dignity and self-esteem. Producer Jackie Osei-Tutu ; Executive producer Debbie Christie Colour/black andwhite Stereo

John Wayne : the Unquiet American
John Wayne was more than just America's most popular movie actor: his on-screen heroism came to stand for America itself.
Off-screen, his bravery in battling the cancerthat eventually killed him endorsed his heroic image. But why did this fervent supporter of the war in Vietnam avoid service in the Second World War, support the Hollywood blacklist and attack his country's civil rights movement? Among tonight's contributors are fellow actors
Charlton Heston and Maureen
O'Hara, director Oliver Stone and members of Wayne's immediate family.

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.
