: Come On You Reds!

Arsenal Football Club has fans who range from the royal to the loyal and from the youngest of the 'Junior Gunners' to those who vaguely remember a different game before 'soccer fans' became synonymous with louts and hooligans.
In the last few months, football violence has made headline news, but the horror stories may not be an accurate image of the game.
Every week there are hundreds of thousands of orderly fans who attend matches - home or away -with undying devotion. Nigel Farrell - who until recently had never attended a professional game - has spent the season following the fans and the fortunes of one of the League's top clubs - Arsenal. Producer PETER ESTALL.

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.
