' The rich man in his castle and the poor man at his gate' was how it used to be on the old country estates, and there are still a few people who remember what it was like.
Minterne, in Dorset, the home of the Digby family since 1765, managed to uphold this tradition until the 1930s.

: Clark Gable in Mogambo

The. Great Stars: the second of three films starring the 'King' of Hollywood with Ava Gardner, Grace Kelly
Jungle adventure at its most exciting and one of the King's greatest post-war successes, Mogambo also gains from the lively handling of veteran director John Ford. Gable plays Vic Marswell, a white hunter whose business is handling wild animals. On this expedition he finds himself snared by two new types - Ava Gardner as a stranded show-girl and Grace Kelly as the cool, beautiful young wife of a British anthropologist.

: Omnibus: Happy Birthday, Dear Albert

Celebrating 100 years of The Royal Albert Hall
Introduced by The Scaffold with Sir John Gielgud, Sir John Betjeman, John Snagge
London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Bryan Kelly
Gillian Weir (organ)
The Royal Choral Society who also celebrate their centenary this year
One hundred years ago a dream became a reality - born out of the profits of the 1851 Exhibition - inspired by the memory of the Prince Consort - realised in iron and stone and terra-cotta, The Royal Albert Hall of Arts and Sciences
The centre of an expanding, optimistic Victorian universe. Here under one roof would be a meeting place for all the skills - music, painting and (for where had the money come from?) the manufacturing industries as well.
With such lofty and worthy ambitions the hall was doomed to success. This programme, recorded at the Royal Albert Hall, recounts the personalities and events that have led to that success.

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.

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.
