Anna Ryder-Richardson discovers the ecologically friendly homes that can save significant sums of money each year on bills and Paul Higgins reveals how to spot areas ripe for gentrification as well as explaining how taste in decor can affect property values.

Provocative films concentrating on contemporary culture. The Museum of Memory
John Maybury 's film is a complex visual meditation on the idea of memory at the end of the 20th century. Using state-of-the-art video effects, the work takes as its starting point an imaginary debate between Antonin Artaud and Edie Sedgwick chaired by visionary designer and eighties counter-cultural icon Leigh Bowery.
With this work, Maybury, who wrote and directed the Francis Bacon biography Love Is the Devil, has taken a deliberately antithetical position to the film theory of Dogma popularised by recent art-house releases such as Festen and The Idiots.
Starring Daniel Craig and Heile Makatsch , with the voice of Sir Derek Jacobi plus a soundtrack by Daniel Goddard. Contains strobing effects in parts. Producer Keith Griffiths

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.
