: Horizon

8/9. The Six Billion Dollar Experiment. On 26 November 2007, the most complex scientific instrument ever built will be used in an extraordinarily ambitious experiment. Located within a labyrinth of tunnels beneath the French/Swiss border, the$6 billion
(approximately £3 billion) Large Hadron Collider will be used to re-create the Big Bang. If successful, the experiment could open the door to a complete understanding of the universe's deepest secrets and even yield the ultimate goal of physics - a theory of everything. But if the worst happens, the collider could create a black hole powerful enough to devour the entire planet.

: This World: The Fight for Cuba's Music

The success of the film Buena Vista Social Club inspired many Cuban musicians to set about re-releasing their old songs. But American publishing company Peer Music quickly took them to court, claiming their founder bought ownership to the songs in the 1930s. This documentary follows the legal battle between the company and the surviving composers, who argue that the tunes are part of Cuba's musical heritage.

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.
