: Rudyard Kipling. Lived Here

Kingsley Amis at Batemans
Rudyard Kipling has given more memorable phrases to the English language than almost any 20th-century writer. But because they're so often quoted out of context he's been more often misunderstood than almost any English writer. Kingsley Amis visits Batemans, the Jacobean house in Sussex where Kipling spent the last 30 years of his life, and tries to clear up some of the misunderstandings.

: Man Alive: Should Go Far

Reporters: Jeremy James, Jeanne la Chard, John Pitman, Jack Pizzey, Desmond Wilcox, Harold Williamson

"You can't put talented children in the same category as others. They have to give up so much to achieve their ambitions. It's a terrible dedication."
So says the music professor teaching 11-year-old Alison Baker, a would-be concert pianist who has sacrificed the life of a normal child in order to become a star. John Pitman talks to three talented children - Alison and two 12-year-olds: Craig Maitland who wants to be a champion skater and Fiona Coull who wants to be an Olympic swimmer.
All three are completely dedicated and have great potential. But, as the experts point out, talent in children so young can burn itself out. And not for some years will they know whether the price they are paying is going to be worth it in the end.

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.
