: The Battle for Britain's Soul

New series 1/4. The Rev Peter Owen-Jones continues to chart the religious history of the British Isles.
The Church in Danger. The 18th century was a time of great upheaval, with forces old and new poised to attack the established Protestant Church in Britain.
The Catholics threatened religious war, reformist sects began to challenge the Church's comfortable monopoly, and new ideas in science and philosophy questioned the very truth of Christian faith.

: Map Man

5/8. John Cary 's "Inland Navigation" (1796). By the end of the 18th century, canals traversed every part of Britain - and all of them had to be mapped. John Cary 's surveys were comprehensive and geographically precise, but the network they charted has now largely disappeared. So when
Nicholas Crane goes looking for Cary's routes through the Black Country, he's faced with a lot of detective work - not to mention some serious walking.

: Simon Wiesenthal - the Man WhoHunted Nazis

Having survived a dozen concentration camps during the Second World War, Simon Wiesenthal died a fortnight ago, aged 96. For more than half a century, Wiesenthal doggedly pursued those he believed to be Nazi war criminals, incurring not only their wrath but also the displeasure of many of those from whom he might have expected support. This documentary in the Reputations strand assesses the motivations of the world's most famous Nazi hunter, and asks how he learnt to live with the legacy of the Holocaust.

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.
