: The Master of Cherryburn

Earlier this summer the Queen Mother opened a museum on the banks of the Tyne, dedicated to the life and work of Thomas Bewick , an artist whose delicate engravings of the richness of nature around him in his native North East give him a place as one of the great masters in British art history.
Paul Allen talks to some of those involved in establishing the museum on the site of Bewick's house and workshop at Cherryburn.

Tinniswood's Olympics The Seoul Olympics are abandoned when
David Coleman declares himself unfit to take his place in the commentary box. So we must give thanks that some weeks ago at Witney Scrotum, with triumph and exultation, the 1988 Alternative Olympics were presented.
Peter Tinniswood bribed the nice lady from the BBC Sound Archives with a box of pontefract cakes and she has kindly put at his disposal some recordings made of this momentous occasion.

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.
