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.

50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
