: Top Gear: 6/7

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May immerse themselves in the world of classic cars to find out if they really are, as the anoraks claim, more fun than modern machinery. Armed with a budget of £3,000 each, they attempt to buy a pre-1982 car at auction; then it's off to Majorca to take part in one very big challenge - a seemingly unfathomable classic car rally. In addition, Jeremy drives with dinosaurs in the new BMW Z4 and Nissan 370Z, and AC/DC singer Brian Johnson is the Star in the Reasonably Priced Car.

: On Thin Ice: 5/5

TV presenter Ben Fogle, Olympian James Cracknell and Dr Ed Coats are recovering at the halfway checkpoint after arriving in second place, just behind race rivals the Norwegians. After resting for 24 hours, the all clear is given. They start out well, racing hard in the face of temperatures that are dropping to -40°C and below, but within days both Ben and James succumb to frostbite. And then, on a particularly hard and cold day, they break down. James is almost at the point of no return and the team are forced to review their situation. They bravely head off again, only to find themselves in a crevasse field. With each step they risk falling through the thin snow bridges that conceal the hidden danger beneath. Their only escape route is to reach the South Pole as fast as possible.

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.
