: All Mod Cons

A six-part series that charts how do-it-yourself has transformed interior design in Britain's homes during the last 50 years. Just Switch On. Immediately after the war, images of the modern American home contrasted sharply with an austere Britain where families spent winter evenings huddled around the living-room fire for warmth. But an end to rationing prompted a revolution, as people finally found themselves able to afford electrical goods and as appliances became widely available. But manufacturers soon realised they faced a bleak future if goods were made too durable and they began to make products with a shorter lifespan incorporating special features. The late fifties saw huge technological advances. Mass manufacturing, competition and increased sales combined with advertising to give birth to the consumer society.

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.
