Food: Masterchef Goes Large 6.30pm BBC2
A talent show for would-be chefs. What a brilliant idea for an early-evening slot to replace The Simpsons! Presumably someone at BBC2 slapped themselves on the forehead when they realised they had this great format tucked away, sadly neglected for the past couple of years. But the old Masterchef was a serious affair. Adding "Goes Large" to the name is like putting GTi on the boot of a car - we know it's going to whiz along and be full of bright young things. It's on every weekday night now, too.
In each programme, eight hopefuls are ruthlessly whittled down to one winner by veg vendor Gregg Wallace and chef John Torode. Someone has told Torode he can be TV's new Mr Nasty and he's run with it. He dishes out tips here and there but really the show isn't about cooking; it's about characters, and they've found some great ones. (David Butcher)

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.
