: America

A Personal History of the United States written and narrated by Alistair Cooke
1: The First Impact
This series has won many awards on both sides of the Atlantic.
In this introductory programme ALISTAIR COOKE retraces the discoveries he made when he first crossed the Atlantic in 1932. The cameras range with him from. Vermont to the Pacific, and from Louisiana to the windswept plains of Minnesota.
Only the British would have the nerve to try and squeeze the history of ' Civilisation ' into 13 television shows with the help of Kenneth Clark and then let Cooke attempt the same thing with the long story of America. It is the greatest television contribution to truth since the invention of the ' instant replay.' (JAMES RESTON, NEW YORK TIMES)

: W.B.Yeats and the Coming Times

W. B. Yeats has long been recognised as a great poet-the greatest since Milton, for some critics - but he was much more than this. He was one of the most adventurous spirits working in the theatre during this century, whose neglected plays anticipate much that has happened since. And he was a bold thinker who refused to accept the taboos of his time: an explorer of the ancient beliefs of Ireland, an investigator of the unexplored potentialities of man, a researcher for lost knowledge in the traditions of antiquity and the East, a practising spiritualist and magician, a prophet of the future.
Tonight's Omnibus programme explores these neglected aspects of Yeats, and shows how closely they relate to his poetry and to his work in the Theatre. with Senator Michael Yeats Anne Yeats

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.
