: Omnibus: A Modern Turn of Mind

The private thoughts of Julius Caesar starring Donald Pleasence
Caesar was the first modern dictator. He gave his name to history, a name which meant power, and pride - Caesar, Kaiser, Tsar.
In 44 BC Caesar was warned to beware the Ides of March - the day of his assassination. How might he have reflected, during the long night before his own bloody death, on his lifetime's journey down the seductive path to absolute power?
Adapted from Rex Warner's novel by Christopher Burstall

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.
