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.
Introduced by Melvyn Bragg Common's Luck
A film about JACK COMMON , the Tyneside writer who died in 1968. His classic account of a northern working-class childhood - Kiddar's Luck - is soon to be republished.
' The man who ...
... rang the bell in a teashop ' or 'the member of the Athenaeum who wore plus-fours ' are characteristic Bateman cartoon figures, embarrassed by their ignorance of proper middle-class behaviour. 2nd House looks at some original H. M. Bateman drawings from the current exhibition at the Leicester Gallery.
Stephanie Bergman
The Garage is a new gallery in London, dedicated to showing the work of living artists: currently they are presenting a collection of large ' sewn canvases' by 27-year-old STEPHANIE BERGMAN.
EDWIN mullins looks at her work from dyeing, cutting and sewing, to the finished canvases in the gallery.
The Fires of London
PETER MAXWELL DAVIES , One of Britain's most highly regarded composers, in 1969 created an ensemble which he called THE FIRES OF LONDON. Tonight they play three of his compositions:
Antechrist, a concert overture, based on a 13th-century motet.
Fantasia and Two Pavanes, from the music of Purcell but updated to the era of the foxtrot. Notre Dame des Fleurs, a miniature opera for three voices.

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.
