July brings with it the revival of this popular feature, which is really a budget of the latest information from authoritative sources about activities for the week-end.

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

externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
