: Bejart + Boulez = Ballet

Last year the brilliant and controversial choreographer Maurice Bejart faced one of the greatest challenges of his colourful career. He was invited to present the world premiere of his ballet of Le Marteau Sans Maître by Pierre Boulez, at La Scala, Milan.
This Omnibus film, first shown last December, observes Béjart and his cast of seven dancers from his ' Ballet of the 20th Century ' during the weeks of preparation in Brussels, both in the rehearsal room and in their homes. During the course of rehearsals, Béjart had to face some unwelcome setbacks. The film shows how he and his dancers overcame these problems and follows them closely through the exciting events before, during and after the world premiere.

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.
