: Abnormal Places

South Wales in the 1900s was an abnormal place in the British Isles - a Klondike of industrial expansion whose immigration levels were surpassed only by the United States. Noah Ablett , described by Aneurin Bevan and Arthur Horner as the most powerful influence on their youth, was one of the leaders in that society in the miners' struggle against the coal owners. He died in 1935 almost unknown, an alcoholic. This is a portrait of Ablett and the society which created and destroyed him.

: The Sunday Feature

The Day the Prime Minister Was Sacked
Could - or would - the Queen dismiss a democratically elected Prime Minister who had lost the ability to govern? Suppose the governing party had its programme regularly barred by a combined opposition.
This is more or less what happened in Australia on 11 November 1975 when
Governor-General Sir John Kerr dismissed Prime Minister
Gough Whitlam and replaced him with the opposition leader Malcolm Fraser.
Ten years later the affair still divides Australians, and the issues it raises are still not finally resolved. To mark the anniversary of what was probably the most startling upset in the history of British-style constitutional government, David Butler of Nuffield College, Oxford considers the lessons of Whitlam's dismissal, with contributions from Robert Blake
Malcolm Fraser Max Walsh and Gough Whitlam.

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.
