: The Way We Cooked

The colourful lives and influences on our eating habits of TV chefs down the decades are celebrated in this re-edited four-part series. Tonight looks at two culinary experts who started cooking at an early age. Gary Rhodes was just 13-years-old when he cooked the full Sunday lunch for his family, and he went on to rediscover the great British classics. Similarly, chirpy cockney Jamie Oliver used to help out in his father's pub kitchen from the age of eight, growing up to inspire millions with his passion for "pukka" grub. The final episode is tomorrow at 9pm. Producer Jonathan Barker : Executive producer Katie Lander

: BBC4 on BBC2: The Voynlch Mystery

Documentary on the mysterious Voynich Manuscript, which has thwarted the best analytical brains ever since it was unearthed in an Italian monastery in 1912 by Wilfrid Voynich , an antiquarian book dealer from London. With 238 pages written in an unknown language, and peppered with crude botanical, astrological and anatomical paintings, no-one has worked out what it means or what the book is about.
The programme tells the story of the manuscript and of the mysterious man who discovered it, journeying into the worlds of espionage, alchemy, hertoalism and the supernatural.

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.
