: A Better Mousetrap

Britain has always enjoyed a reputation for inventive genius. But how do we treat people with new approaches today? What are the chances of seeing their ideas in action, and what are the battles they have to fight? In this six-part series, Bill Breckon probes the personalities of some modern innovators, seeks clues to their success and failure, and asks if, in Britain today, a man invents a better mousetrap, will the world beat a path to his door?
This week: Sally Willey-the lone inventor, a dying breed.

: The Lighter Side of Christmas

For some people Christmas is primarily a religious festival, for some it's an opportunity for a rest, and for some it's a Bacchanalian orgy. But for everybody it should be a time for laughter. There is the raucous variety - parties, pantomimes and so on - and there is the quieter laughter which is what Vincent Kane sets out to inspire in this light-hearted look at Christmas, in prose, poetry and a little music.

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.
