: * BOURNEMOUTH

by RAY GOSLING
Where some two thousand people come every year to retire and die. ' Darling I am growing old. silver threads among the gold.' That autumn tan. This is our Miami, on the sunny south coast. A very Tory town. Where Stevenson wrote Kidnapped and some of the train robbers' money was found. As Ray Gosling sees it, ' Where time hangs heavy on your sticky hands.'

: GENETIC ENGINEERING

A series of eight talks
4: Plants made to measure by DR. RALPH RILEY
The Plant Breeding Institute, Cambridge
Wheat breeding— for long the selection of the best from the best and hoping for the best—has been greatly helped by the ability of breeders to manipulate chromosomes and even single genes. It seems quite possible that the research on the chromosomes of wheat may also indicate ways to prevent some human cellular abnormalities.

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.

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.
