: Horizon

Malaria: Defeating the Curse. Three thousand people die daily from the effects of malaria. For 100 years scientists have battled this insidious mosquito-borne disease - yet every time it appears that progress has been made, malaria has returned stronger and more deadly. But scientists now have a new weapon in their arsenal, the product of bitter Cold War rivalries and modern biotechnology. Could an extraordinarily powerful drug discovered and kept hidden by China under Chairman Mao finally win the war? A new series is planned for the autumn.

Storyville reveals how a postman and a gardener took on the corporate might of McDonald's. In 1997, David Morris and Helen Steel were convicted of libelling the fast-food giant following a campaign against the corporation's employment policies and advertising. But in February this year they scored a landmark legal win: the European Court ruled they should have received legal aid from the government; they were granted a total of €35,000 and a retrial.

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.
