The eerie landscape of Dartmoor conceals many secrets; but can it really be possible that the legendary hound of hell still walks by night, bringing death to all who bear the ancient name of Baskerville? Sherlock Holmes is too busy to investigate - but John Watson is not.

: Going to the Dogs

Radio 4 is Going to the Dogs to meet the men and women who either have fun or make money, and sometimes if they're lucky both, at one of the nation's greyhound stadiums.
For some it's for excitement and entertainment; for others it's their livelihood; to many it's simply the thrill of owning and racing a pet.

South Korea is a traditional country plunged suddenly into the 20th century. Ancient arts and crafts rub up against the ultra-modern. Christopher Cook explores the Korean culture clash to discover the national character preserved within, just a couple of months before the eyes of the world focus on Seoul for the Olympic Games.

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.
