: Horizon

The Lost Civilisation of Peru. Two thousand years ago a civilisation known as the Moche ruled the northern coast of Peru. They built huge pyramids, produced some of the most exquisite jewellery ever seen, and founded an empire that lasted for hundreds of years. Then, they simply vanished. Until recently, almost nothing was known about the Moche people or what became of them. Now crucial new discoveries can help us to understand the rise and sudden fall of one of the greatest civilisations of the ancient world. Producer Nick Davidson ; Editor Matthew Barrett

: Botched Operations - Sweeney Investigates

To slash hospital waiting lists from two years to six months was one of New Labour's manifesto pledges. And now, it seems, they've cracked it. By the end of 2005 only 12 people had to wait longer than six months for their operations. Foreign surgeons working in private hospitals had reduced NHS waiting lists dramatically - but at what cost? John Sweeney reveals how a series of bungled operations have left patients crippled, and asks if the drive to meet political targets has left people in agony.

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.
