: The Diamond World: Tuesday's Documentary

For two-and-a-half-thousand years diamonds have been man's most coveted possession. Once they blazed in triumph from the crowns of Kings and Emperors. Today they are any girl's 'best friend' and diamond mining just another large-scale industrial process; yet the magic of diamonds remains. What lies behind this magic is the theme of The Diamond World.

What matters in the news and out of it


Editor: Anthony Smith

: George Szell

talks to John Culshaw

In the second of two conversations, the celebrated conductor speaks of his experiences in opera houses and comments pointedly on the art of conducting.
George Szell is the conductor of the Cleveland Orchestra and one of the senior and most respected maestros on the international scene. He has walked out of the pit of more major opera houses than many conductors have ever entered. In this programme he gives some of the reasons for these seeming displays of temperament, comments pointedly on the relationship between cast, producer, and conductor in the opera house, outlines his own stringent tests for young conductors who aspire to be his assistants at Cleveland, and has some sharp things to say about conductors at rehearsal and about the element of 'showmanship' in conducting.

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.
