The magazine programme that is made by- and addresses issues of interest to - disabled people. Speed is one of the biggest dangers on Britain's roads, with 39 per cent of spinally injured people disabled in road-traffic accidents, yet the thrill of driving too fast still represents a great temptation.

: Me First

What do Tony Blair , John F Kennedy and Yasser Arafat all have in common? The answer is that they are all middle children and, according to some theories about birth order, they display the characteristics - tough, good communicators, excellent negotiators - typical of those who occupy this position in the family. This one-off film explores the world of birth order and asks if people's personalities are really influenced by their position within the family unit. Director Mick Conefrey
Executive producer Clare Paterson

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.
