historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the

- not those of today.
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

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
