: The Antiques Show

Fiona Bruce visits the pottery factories of Staffordshire to find out more about the life of pioneering thirties designer
Susie Cooper. While the name of Clarice Cliff is familiar to many, the work of Cooper, her contemporary, is less celebrated even though many claim it to be of superior quality.
Tim Wonnacott , an admitted hoarder of antique bric-a-brac, reports on why collecting is such a common British pastime. He meets an out-of-work builder with a L25,000 pottery collection, the couple who fervently pursue toast racks, and the woman who prefers plastic trolls to men.
Meanwhile, Madeleine Marsh is given a sneak preview of the country's first tattoo museum.

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.
