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

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

externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
