: HBO - the One to Watch

Comic actor/writer Stephen Merchant (The Office, Extras) celebrates the achievements of American pay-TV network HBO (Home Box Office), which cable pioneer Charles Dolan started up in the 1960s as a Manhattan-only service. With currently over 40 million subscribers, the comedy, drama, sports and movie outlet regularly now outshines all other networks in terms of Emmy nominations, having built a reputation as a maverick programmer with shows such as The Larry Sanders Show (1992), Sex and the City (1998), The Sopranos (1999), Curb Your Enthusiasm
(2000) and Six Feet Under (2001). The station has collaborated with the BBC on Extras and Rome (both 2005) and with Channel 4 on Da Ali G Show (2003). Discussing their HBO jobs are actors Aidan Gillen (The Wire) and Jane Alexander (Tell Me You Love Me), and Sopranos team leaders
David Chase , Terence Winter and director/actor Peter Bogdanovich. Producer Kate Bland

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
