: Venice - the Most Serene Republic

Written and narrated by John R. Hale
In her greatest days Venice was one of the powers of Europe. From her reedy islands huddling in the lagoon she extended her empire right across the Mediterranean. She brought to Europe great wealth and uncountable treasure. But at the heart of this rich and gorgeous city lay an exceptional genius for tranquillity - an achievement she was never to pass on. JOHN HALE sets out to tell the story of the rise of this unique Republic whose citizens called her ' La Serenissima. '

All of us have been exposed to the bear cult; bears have been our cot companions and our story-time heroes or villains.
What is the origin of the friendly teddy? How does the bear's real-life character stand up to his nursery reputation? What are the problems of bears picnicking in the woods?

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.
