The first in a monthly survey of the arts in America.
Introduced by Humphrey Burton
Tonight: Dave Brubeck - a portrait of the jazz pianist and composer.
Twenty-five years ago he founded one of the most successful groups in jazz history, the Dave Brubeck Quartet. During the first years the membership underwent a number of changes but the combination best remembered - PAUL DESMOND (alto sax), JOE MORELLO (drums), GENE WRIGHT (bass) - comes together in tonight's film. They are celebrating the Quartet's Silver Jubilee.
Brubeck talks about his teachers, his favourite composers, the roots of jazz, the joys of improvisation ... and plays with a new generation of Brubeck musicians-his sons DARIUS, DANNY and CHRIS.

: The Sky at Night

A New Look from Old Greenwich
For many centuries Greenwich Observatory was the world's leading astronomical establishment, and it marks the ' zero for longitude ', dividing the world into two hemispheres. More than 20 years ago, the telescopes were shifted to the clearer skies of Sussex; but now the largest of the old telescopes, the 28-inch refractor, has been brought back and is in full operation once more.
Patrick Moore and Dr Percy Sey mour, of the National Maritime Museum, discuss this new development, and explain the modern role of the Greenwich refractor, which is still the largest telescope of its kind in the British Isles.
Director GEOFF WALMSLEY Producer PATRICIA WOOD

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
