: The Belfast Exchange

The Radio 4 Generation
'We don't really understand
Northern Ireland - what's really happening out there?'
'No one bothers to explain Belfast anymore - what's ordinary life like? Why can t we find out for ourselves?'
The Radio 4 Generation were all first time voters at the last election. Radio 4 is following the progress of these 200 young People over the coming decade. When the 'troubles' in Northern Ireland began most of them were preschool toddlers.
When they first met in June, most were curious about the Province. Now they're in Belfast to find out for themselves and to exchange perceptions with their counterparts from the Six Counties.

: File on 4

A Revolution without Shots In the 70 years since the Bolsheviks came to power, there has been little challenge to the dominant role of the Communist Party. Those who did challenge it faced jail, exile or death. But now many of those formerly underground voices are speaking openly. The debate is not only about more meat and less censorship, but, as Bridget Kendall and Gordon Clough find in their last report from the USSR, it amounts to a serious probing of the future role of Lenin's Party in Gorbachev's Soviet Union.

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.
