: In the Space of Ten Years

In April 1961 Major Yurt Gagarin became the first man to travel in space and return safelv to earth. In the same year President Kennedy predicted that an American would set foot on the moon by the end of the decade. Many were sceptical but year by year the space race intensified.
The Americans reached their goal in 1969 when Neil Arm strong made that ' small step for man. but one giant leap for mankind,' and they have continued their programme of manned flights. The Russians have probed deeper into space with their unmanned craft, and the Chinese have begun, modestly, their own space programme.
James Burke evaluates the progress of the past ten years and looks forward to the next decade.

: Medical Mysteries: The Dancing Mania

'Both men and women were abused by the desire to such a degree that they danced in their homes, in the churches, and in the streets. While they danced they called out the names of demons, but they were unaware of this, nor did they pay attention to modesty, even though people watched them.... Those who were cured said they seemed to have been dancing in a river of blood...'
From earliest times there are records of outbreaks of compulsive dancing accompanied by lurid hallucinations. What were the causes? Have they anything in common?

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.
