6: Purl or Plain?
Whatever fibres go into textiles - natural or man-made - new methods of spinning, weaving, knitting or even rolling them out like dough will extend and vary the uses to which they can be put. Are spray-on suits a piece of science-fiction or something we may see in years to come? George Luce finds out.

: The Last Squire of Erddig

My Wish
I would not that these scenes so fair
Should be by me alone enjoyed. But that such pleasures those may share
Whose hours arc in the Town employed.
Lines written by a former squire of Erddig in North Wales, home of the Yorke family for 250 years. In 1973, Philip Yorke , the last direct descendant, gave the house, its contents and land to the National Trust, a gift estimated at over 13 million. Today, the house opens to the public following an Intensive rescue operation by the Trust to restore the property to its former glory, and at the same time to preserve its unique atmosphere as a family home. Philip Yorke and others look back on a vanished way of life. Research by HOWARD

Stories went around that about 9 o'clock the streets were empty because everybody was listenfng to the Greek programmes on the BBC and Deutsche Welle. Because of censorship, all the Greek newspapers had their information given to them by the Colonels - they couldn't print anything else.

: All in the Mind?

How much is known about consciousness? What happens to the mind under hypnosis? What power, if any, is at work when a dowser senses water, or a young man has 'out of the body' experiences, or a concert pianist claims to be in touch with the mind of Beethoven?
Leslie Smith talks about personal experiences of different states of mind with John Lill, David Roberts, Athene Williams, Robert Leftwich and Peter Fairley and discusses some of the implications of these experiences with Professor Giles Brindley (neurophysiologist), Dr Peter Fenwick (psychiatrist), Professor John Cohen (psychologist), and Carl Sargent (postgraduate researcher into the paranormal at the University of Cambridge). Other contributors: Adrian Parker, George Roberts and a medical hypnotist.

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.
