: THE MARSH DWELLERS OF SOUTHERN IRAQ

by Wilfred Thesiger
The Ma'dan, who live in Southern Iraq, are a nomadic and aquatic people. They build their homes of reed mats on sodden piles of rushes, like a dabchick's nest. Wilfred Thesiger, one of the most distinguished travellers of modern times, has spent much of the last six years living with them and studying their habits. He believes them to be descended from the original indigenous people of Iraq on whom Arab conquerors imposed their language, religion, and culture.

: MOZART and CHOPIN

Peter Katin (piano)
Chopin's Sonata in B minor is distinguished by its profusion of lyrical melodies and ornamentation. The first movement, Allegro maestoso, is also marked by an unusual freedom of modulation and by the very beautiful and extended cantilena that serves as second subject. A swift-moving yet delicate Scherzo in E flat is followed by a Largo in B major which is not unlike a Nocturne. Vigour and brilliance are combined in the finale. The Sonata was written in 1844, much of it during the summer at George Sand 's country house at Nohant. Harold Rutland

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.

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.
