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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

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