2/8. Chimps Are People Too. Danny Wallace is on a mission to convince the world that chimps are people too. He believes the time has come to make our hairy relatives part of the family. Our primate brethren share
99.4 per cent of our DNA, and are more closely related to us than they are to gorillas. Being so, should they be afforded the same rights as people? Armed with the latest scientific evidence, Danny travels the globe in order to quiz primatologists, philosophers, animal rights lawyers and chimps to discover the truth.

2/6. Will Israel Bomb Iran? Just as Israel ends one war, it is getting ready for what may be its next armed conflict. This time, the enemy is Iran, the Islamic state accused of arming Hezbollah's militia. This film gets inside the intensely secret world of the Israeli military, where the top brass speak openly for the first time about the threat to Israel posed by Iran's alleged atomic weapons programme. With America unlikely to take military action, the pressure also grows on Israel's leaders to launch a raid to knock out Iran's nuclear programme. Plus contributions from former Israeli prime ministers

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
