Why did he exclude everything at street level? What dictated his choice of colour for each line? Minding the gap, Nicholas Crane checks out the facts.

: Horizon

Pub manager James Wannerton develops a strong taste of earwax in his mouth every time he sees a regular called Derek. John, meanwhile, sees words as colours, even though he is blind. Both of these men have a condition called synaesthesia - where senses become inextricably linked - which, for years, cynical scientists have consigned to the same category as seances and spoon-bending. But now it appears we are all synaesthetic to some degree; it could explain how creativity and language evolved. This touching and witty film explores this strange world.

: I'll Show Them Who's Boss

3/6. Born to Rule. The Norwood Park estate is the setting for what could be an unlikely break in aristocratic tradition. The current baronet, Sir John Starkey , is about to retire but, with the estate's three businesses under-performing and the house in disrepair, how can he safeguard the Nottinghamshire pile for future generations? Sir Gerry Robinson moots a contest between all of Starkey's four children - including three daughters - for the top job, thus ignoring centuries of patrician primogeniture. The results are somewhat startling. Producer Veronica Clifford : Series producers Colin Barr and Kelly Webb-Lamb

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.
