Che Lives!


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
To mark last month's 80th anniversary of the birth of Latin American revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara, Radio 2 invites artists, musicians, actors, directors and authors to assess the legacy of the Argentinian whose status as a countercultural icon owes much to
Alberto Korda 's 1960 head-shot photo - allegedly the most reproduced picture in history. Featuring cultural theorist Germaine Greer , film directors Alan Parker , Wim Wenders , Walter Salles and Steven Soderbergh , actor Benicio del Toro (who plays Guevara in Soderbergh's new biopic), lyricist Tim Rice (Evita), comic Ricky Gervais and others. Producer Des Shaw

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
