Eight portraits presented by Hugh O'Shaughnessy 3: Estrada
'We've had more visitors since they opened the new road than in the previous 300 years.' Estrada, on Costa Rica's
Atlantic coast, is a railway village - the railway line is the main street, and until recently it was the only connection with the capital, San Jose. Now, life in Estrada is changing, and white. Spanish-speaking Catholics are beginning to outnumber the black, English-speaking Anglicans.

: Rebels

1: Geronimo: He Who Yawns 'When the last red man shall have perished and the memory of my tribe shall have become a myth among the white man, these shores will swarm with the invisible dead of my tribe.' Leader of the Chiricahua Apache, Geronimo led his people against the military might and colonising armies of the United States and Mexico. It finally took 10,000 soldiers to capture him and his 19 warriors in 1886. He was never allowed to return to his desert homeland of Arizona; instead, he was dumped in the damp, swampy climate of Florida, where he died aged 79.

Twenty-seven per cent of the Radio 4 Generation think royalty should be abolished. Sixty-seven per cent believe riots in our cities will become more common. So what are they proud of?

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.
