: Star Trek at 40 - Where No-One Has Gone Before

Radio 2 boldly celebrates the 40th anniversary of writer/producer
Gene Roddenberry 's original Star Trek series, which debuted on US TV screens on 8 September 1966. The sci-fi adventure starring William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy (as Captain James T Kirk and Mr Spock ) aired for just three seasons but, thanks to extensive re-runs and an intense fan base, evolved into what undoubtedly must be the number one cult programme in television history, and has survived in numerous film and television incarnations.
Comedian Stewart Lee explores the show's legacy - including its influence on physicists - with contributions from actors
Leonard Nimoy and Patrick Stewart , sci-fi actor/director Jonathan Frakes , astronomer Patrick Moore , and fans Tracey Emin , Gary Numan , Mitch Benn and Hattie Hayridge (of TV's Red Dwarf).

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.
