: Old New World

The first of three programmes in which popular historian
Lucinda Lambton tours America in search of the traditions and heritage that have survived into the 21st century.
The United States of Europe. America's European past has survived, sometimes in dramatic fashion, to reveal the social and cultural heritage of its communities. Examples include an English settlement in Massachusetts, an early-German meeting house in Maine, a Greek soda fountain in Indiana and an Irish-American bar in Manhattan. Meanwhile, the Anhauser Busch Brewery in St Louis and Virginia's Shirley Plantation also display strong European origins.

Killers Don't Cry. For the past 100 years, South African prisons have been host to a tightly organised criminal gang network called "the numbers". Based on a hierarchy of violence, the fraternity has a mystical reputation among convicts and inspires lifelong devotion in its members.
In the years since the end of apartheid, the now non-racist prison authorities have been attempting the audacious feat of breaking the numbers system. In this documentary, members break their silence for the first time to reveal the gang's inner workings. With Alan Little.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
