Rolf's guests, Alice Kessler and Ellen Kessler; Jo Castor and Jose Feliciano
(Rolf Harris is appearing at the Royal Aquarium Theatre. Great Yarmouth)

Catching Rolf Harris at home is quite impossible for the best part of the year. When I spoke to him about tonight's special show, he was temporarily grounded for a day or two.
Rolf has been starring with The Seekers in Pop goes Australia at Expo 67. "It was a great success-we played to packed houses all the week". His wife Alwen, a Londoner, and three-year-old daughter Bindi were in Montreal with him.
The TV show this evening will be cast in the same mould as Rolf's last popular series-thirty swinging kids will be there, many of whom are newcomers, but thirteen of whom were in the last series. Once again several hundreds of boys and girls were auditioned for this new show.
Guests will include Alice and Ellen Kessler, Jose Feliciano - a Puerto Rican guitarist and singer - and what Rolf describes as an 'unbelievable' novelty act by Jo Castor. "A girl comes out with a puppet, stands it on the table and puts a paintbrush in its hand. Then she leaves the puppet - painting pictures on a drawing board"

Our World
Unsere Welt

This evening in Europe, this afternoon in America, tomorrow in Japan, Live Television Circles the Globe for the first time ever linking five continents and bringing man face to face with mankind in places as far apart as Canberra and Cape Kennedy, Moscow and Montreal, Samarkand and Soderfors, Takamatsu and Tunis.

The babies who are being born at this moment in time
are joining a hungry and overcrowded human race,
a race responding to the challenge of the physical world,
a race aiming at artistic excellence,
a race striving to widen the frontiers of the mind,
a race reaching out beyond its own planet,
a race building for the world of tomorrow

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.
