The glossy Sunday magazine presented by Margo MacDonald One hundred minutes of diversion, entertainment and sometimes even information about issues and personalities in the public eye.
Today's edition includes:
High Noon: one of the week's topics discussed live in the studio.
The Morning After:
Nigel Farrell continues his anatomy of the Great British Saturday Night by reporting on how one group of people spent their time and their money last night. International Exchange: a link-up with other countries around the world.
Modern Manners: how not to commit embarrassing mistakes in unfamiliar situations from those intrepid observers of the unwritten rules of social interaction, Laurie Taylor and Vic Lewis Smith. A Year of My Own:
Donald Trelford chooses 1966 as a year specially important to him. It was the year England won the World Cup, the first unmanned craft landed on the moon and he returned from Africa to join The Observer.
Derek Jameson takes a personal look at the day's offerings from Fleet Street.
Plus Rory Bremner continuing an everyday story of broadcasting folk.

: Heritage

In a series of six programmes Kenneth Hudson looks at the way we view history.
5: History in the Sewers
In 1750 Manchester was a place of no importance with a population of 5,000. During the next 100 years it grew to more than 350,000 with houses and factories jammed against one another. The consequent hazard to health was appalling. KENNETH HUDSON visits
Manchester and Brighton to learn how Victorian engineers dealt with such problems, and goes to Salisbury to see a museum which literally grew out of the sewers.

: Don't Fuss

Sick and severely crippled nearly all his life.
Edward Burra ignored all attempts to fuss over him, promote his work or cultivate him as a 'personality'. For this reason, his watercolour painting describing a mischievous but disquieting world of bars, brothels, lorries with teeth and slightly sinister flowers is little known.
George Melly presents a portrait of this eccentric artist with a remarkable talent. With the voice of Burra himself and contributions from his sister, Lady Ann Richie , and Barbara Ker-Seymer William Chappell

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.
