Genome...

What was on TV when you were young ?
What TV programmes can you remember from your youth ?

What was on TV on the day you were born ?

Those questions can now be answered thanks to the BBC's GENOME 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 that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.
This is a historical record of both 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.
So if we go back to late December back in 1963...
