: Andy Peebles

Andy Peebles takes stock: After six weeks of presenting Radio 1's Breakfast Show, I can honestly say that I never felt fitter - always presuming that I was once fit anyway! Although the Breakfast Show involves a radical change of lifestyle, to present the programme at this time of year is a pleasurable experience. My alarm call, which goes off at 4 o'clock, gives me two hours to get from my home in North London to the studio, get myself organised and arrive 'on air' at 6.00 am. Broadcasting House is a somewhat strange place at this time of the morning as apart from the friendly BBC commissionaire, who presents me with my copies of the daily papers, and the engineer who works on the programme with me, I am not likely to see anybody. Seeing the sun come up (if it does!) is followed by the strange experience of watching Broadcasting House come to life in front of one's very eyes.'

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.
