: John Lennon 1940-80: 5: The Re-emergence - 1980 et seq.

A five-part tribute based on a conversation between John Lennon, Yoko Ono and Andy Peebles recorded in New York on 6 December last year - two days before John Lennon's tragic death

'I've been walking the streets for the last seven years. When we first moved here, we actually lived in Greenwich Village, where all the students and the would-bes live - a few old poets and that; She (Yoko) told me, "Yes, you can walk on the street", but I would be walking around tense-like, waiting for somebody to say something, or jump on me, and it took me two years to unwind. I can go right out this door now, and go in a restaurant - you want to know how great that is! Or go to the movies! I mean, people come and ask for autographs or say "Hi", but they don't bug you.'

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.
