' We have found a great black substance
Lying on the ground.
Very oddly shaped is the object we have found. Larger thun his Majesty's bedchamber, The edge is flat, the centre's round. Wo have stamped upon it !f Wo have stamped upon it ! And it is hollow !
And wo humbly conceive
That the thing which we have founa
Must be something that the great Man Mountain Left lying on the ground !

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.
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.
