: Andrew Marr's History of Modern Britain

5/5. New Britannia. The journalist's epic national saga draws to a close with an examination of the post-Thatcher years. Many eventually did well under Thatcher, but just as Britons were getting used to the good things in life, boom began to turn to bust and belt-tightening was once again the order of the day. John Major could not find that elusive "feel-good factor", so enter New Labour's smiling master of spin, Tony Blair. Marr charts the major events of both Major's and Blair's years in power, including Black Wednesday, the dawn of the world wide web, war in Iraq, and the growing awareness of global warming, considering the nation's final shift from an imperial power to an island at the heart of an increasingly global economy.

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.
