: NEW WORLDS

A weekly magazine of discovery and invention
News and views of the men and women whose achievements are going to affect our daily life
A Science Unit production
The producer, Laurie John , writes: So it's something new in science or technology. But will it have a direct impact on people's lives? If not, it must be so startling that the listener is bound to want to know anyway. Or it could just have that indefinable blend of strangeness and colour that makes intriguing listening. Tonight these selection tests may produce a peep at a high-speed electronic carrier pigeon, a thing that teaches children to read without them knowing it, a way to wash up with sugar, and more besides. Or the whole lot may go by the board to make way for more topical items. I never know for sure until a few minutes before we go on the air.

: THE UNDERWORLD OF THE FAR NORTH-WEST

There are few limestone caving areas in Scotland, but in West Sutherland there is one such, a scarcely explored area. A fortnight ago a party of cavers from Edinburgh and English clubs determined to try to open up what might be by far the largest such system in Scotland. This is an account of that operation, and of the people who find a challenge in going underground

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.
