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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
