Keir Dullea , Gary Lockwood
A mysterious slab has been found on the moon, beaming signals to Jupiter. At this first indication of sentient beings in space, a nine-month voyage to follow the signals is set up, with two astronauts manning a huge spaceship and three more travelling in a state of hibernation. As they hurtle beyond the range of mission control, the crew is disturbed to discover that Hal, the ship's computer, has a mind of his own ...
Made before man had set foot on the moon, Kubrick's vision of the future remains the most accomplished science prediction ever filmed.

: Wedding Day

Not only Charles and Diana but also Ambrose and Tony and Shirley and Delma ...
It was watched by 750 million people around the world. Charles and Diana were the stars. But there were nearly a million extras in the great Royal Wedding production.
Travelling through the night came a busload of Liverpool ladies; from Wales came a male voice choir; a group from Milwaukee, USA, paid £250 each for a ringside seat and constant champagne; from north London came Mr and Mrs Daley , with their eight children; and from Scotland the gillie who taught Prince Charles to fish. Meanwhile behind the scenes were policemen, St John Ambu lancemen, buskers and journalists. It was a once-in-a-lifetime event.

Having been hailed as one of the great discoveries of her generation in 1981 at the age of 27, the soprano Isobel Buchanan faced a crucial year as she struggled to fulfil these early predictions.
With three major roles-The Countess in The Marriage of Figaro at Glyndebourne, Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni at Aix-en-Provence and Adina in L'elisir d'amore in Chicago, she was bidding for a place in the prestigious and lucrative circus of international stars whose names draw the fans to the world's opera houses.

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.

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.
