: Who Rules the Waves?

On 1 January this year, Britain and other countries of the European Community extended their fishing limits to 200 miles. Not so long ago, British trawlers were involved in a cod war with Iceland over their fishing limits, and now we've extended ours without full world agreement. But who really rules these new British waves? What are the implications for our fishermen, who are seeking a better deal from the EEC? And do we have the naval and air force resources to police these new waters - traditionally fished by the Russians - adequately? Written and presented by Jack Regan

: Prisoner of the Indies

by LOUISE COLLIS with Ronald Pickup as Francois Pyrard
In 1494 Pope Alexander VI divided the world between France and Spain. Africa, India and the East Indies were declared the exclusive property of Portugal. However, by the late 1500s Holland, England and then France began to make inroads on the Portuguese monopoly. In 1601 Francois Pyrard embarked on one of the first French boats to join in the eastern adventure. On his return he wrote a description of the voyage, its triumphs and tribulations, the people he met, the cities he saw.

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.
