The Multipurpose Swop Shop
By°driving a car, taking a holiday, or simply watching TV you've earned yourself a place on three separate files; and it's estimated that up to 50 different databanks, many computerised, know who you are. Most of this ' fingerprinting ' activity is. it is claimed, ultimately for your benefit, but more and more information is exchanged between government departments, commercial institutions and private organisations, and Britain now lags critically behind other Western countries in controls over the potential abuse of such
' file swops '. Roger Cook asks who knows who you are - and how? Research by Robert Del Maestro

A series of five programmes on people who have played an important. sometimes decisive part in the life and work of a famous man or woman. 5: Dearest Mongoose by DOROTHY BAKER and narrated by David March
On 29 May 1912 Virginia Stephen accepted the proposal of ' the Jew with the trembling hands'. Leonard Woolf. They were apparently incompatible: she admitted to frigidity. and he to lust. But the marriage was a record of intelligence, hard work, immense achievement and great mutual love. Without the devoted care of her dearest mongoose'. Virginia Woolf would not have been able to fulfil her considerable genius.

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.
