: Chasing Celebrity

1/2. Radio 2 devotes two programmes to the concept of celebrity, as pop culture observer Paul Morley assesses what it takes to remain top of the heap, whether through constant reinvention, extreme humiliation and/or other desperation-fuelled measures. His many interviewees include Strictly Come Dancing stars and former "nobodys" from Big Brother and other reality shows, production and network bigwigs Paul Jackson (ITV), Elaine Bedell (BBC), Tim Hincks (Endemol UK) and Natalka Znak (I'm a Celebrity.... Get Me Out of Here!). Plus input from celebrity MP Lembit Opik , PR gurus Max Clifford , Alan Edwards and James Herring , agents Jon Thoday and Anita Land, "post-ironic" TV personality Roy Walker and Camilla Wright (of online gossip newsletter Popbitch).

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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 Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
