: Omnibus USA

The arts in America
Introduced by Humphrey Burton Tonight:
Doc, Charlie and the Painters
Three films reflecting the richness of American native arts.
Three Days with Doc
A visit to one of the greatest country musicians - Doc Watson. He lives in the little village of Deep Gap, high in the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina. To the commercial record business he's a star and to his neighbours a hero. Blind since birth, he's a powerful singer and a virtuoso on guitar, banjo and mouth organ. In this film he plays traditional tunes and talks to his friend, the folk music scholar, A. L. Lloyd.
Blues on Times Square
Most afternoons in Times Square, New York, you can find a young busker playing on the sidewalk. His name is Charlie Sayles and he sings the blues.
The People tell their Story
American history is uncommonly rich in folk painters and sculptors -and this is a short history of America seen through their vivid imagination. The music is Aaron Copland 's ' Quiet City'.
Producer BARRIE GAVIN

: Tonight

Plains goes to Washington
On the day the man from Plains, Georgia, becomes President, the entire population of his small home town arrives in Washington for the inauguration.
Tonight - on the train they hired for the 18-hour journey, and outside The Capitol-watches them watching Jimmy Carter take the Oath of Allegiance and listening to his plans for America in the next four years.

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.
