Leicestershire v Warwickshire
Live coverage from Grace Road of this NatWest Trophy 60-overs-per-side quarter-final match. Leicestershire, who defeated Glamorgan by five wickets in the second round, have made itto the final only once - in 1992 - and are yet to win the competition. They experienced similar disappointment in the final of the Benson and Hedges Cup earlierthis month, going down by a huge margin to Essex. By
Contrast, Warwickshire, who thrashed
Kent three weeks ago, have secured the trophy on five occasions. Today's winners will bejust one victory away from the final of the competition at Lord's in September.

The Forgotten Children
A film first shown on BBC South
West continues the documentary series from the BBC Regions. Caring for a terminally ill child can be a stressful experience for parents. The diagnosis can be delivered insensitively, and many parents are then left to cope without any medical or emotional backup. The recent decision to commemorate the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, by setting up community nursing teams to support children has, as this documentary stresses, has highlighted a desperate need for skilled help right across the United Kingdom.

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.
