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

- not those of today.
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,

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