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.
A portrait in words and music Written by MICHAEL KENNEDY
Composer of such well-known works as Peter and the Wolf, The Love of Three Oranges. and the Classical Symphony, Prokofiev was born in Tsarist Russia in 1891 and died in Moscow in 1953 on the same day as Stalin.
His career is a fascinating study of the artist's struggle to reconcile his artistic integrity with the demands made on him by a totalitarian regime. Narrator DAVID MAHLOWE ALAN MOORE as Prokofiev Other parts RONALD HARVI PAUL WEBSTER and CHRISTOPHER WILKINSON Produced by STANLEY WILLIAMSON

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.
