: Analysis

Poor Little Rich Country Endowed with natural resources and a well-educated population, Argentina could be a rich country giving aid to the Third World, but instead is in perennial political and economic crisis. Is democracy under President Raoul Alfonsin dealing with the country's difficulties any better than the previous military regime? Will the economic crisis turn Argentines back to the Peronists? Roland Dallas examines the prospects and the problems facing Argentina's democratic future.

Night Beat
The pop music market is at a crucial period. It's thejob of the record companies' A and R men and women to discover new talent, the Artists and Repertoire. They sift through demo tapes sent in by the hopeful and by the sackful, setting off most nights in search of the band or soloist that might make their day. David Roper goes with them.

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.
