In pursuit of an eighth world title, Stephen Hendry begins his 2004 campaign against Stuart Pettman , who is making only his second appearance at the Crucible. Hendry was definitely not on top form in the first round last year, having to battle hard to secure an uninspired 10-7 victory over Englishman Gary Wilkinson. However, he went on to recapture his form later in the tournament, bagging his 100th century break at the Crucible. Presented by Ray Stubbs and Steve Davis. Commentary by Ray Edmonds , Clive Everton , Terry Griffiths , Dennis Taylor , Willie Thorne and John Virgo.

4/8. The Stonehenge of the North. Mark Horton , Dave MacLeod and Jo Caruth investigate an area of North
Yorkshire landscape which stretches for more than a mile and is dominated by an arrangement of giant earthworks, banks and ditches. Research into the subsequent discovery of three huge amphitheatres built over 5,000 years previously leads archaeologists to uncover an astronomical link to suggest that these buildings, which attracted Neolithic pilgrims from across Britain, were one of the country's first temples to the heavens.

: Happy Birthday BBC2

From its humble beginnings, when its launch night was marred by a power cut that left viewers with just a news bulletin and the message" BBC2 will start shortly" to watch, through to its glory days, the channel celebrates its 40th anniversary by looking back over the people and programmes that have contributed to its success, as programme-makers reveal behind-the-scenes stories about popular shows.
Many of those featured - including The Likely Lads; Arena; The Old Grey Whistle Test; I, Claudius; Edge of Darkness; Boys from the Blackstuff; Not the Nine o 'Clock News; Top Gear; and Little Britain - demonstrate the channel's success with diverse projects, but it has also seen its fair share of failures, such as The Borgias.
Throughout the retrospective, the Dead Ringers team perform topical sketches, and excerpts from letters written by readers of Radio Times shed light on the channel's effect on the viewing public over the years.

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.
