The Story of Britain's Royal Builders and Collectors in nine films Told by Huw Wheldon
All his life King Charles I stammered. Only when he reached the scaffold at the end of a gilded but difficult reign did he speak with clarity and eloquence.
' I go ' he said ' from a corruptible to an incorruptible crown where no disturbance can be, no disturbance in the world.'
In the words of the supporter of Cromwell' he nothing common did. nor mean upon that memorable scene.'
3:
Charles I Charles I was the greatest patron of the arts to occupy the British throne. With paintings by Titian. Raphael, Caravaggio, and many other masters of the Italian Renaissance Charles I enriched the Royal Collection. As patron of Inigo Jones he encouraged a new architecture two centuries in advance of its time. In Van Dyck he had a painter who reflected the majesty of his court, the tender relationships in his family and the exalted aloofness which helped lead to his execution.

: The Nixon Interviews

Since he left the White House in disgrace in 1974, Richard Nixon has remained in silent exile in San Clemente, California.
Now, in a series of major interviews with David Frost , Richard Nixon speaks for the first time in public about the achievements, as well as the defeats and humiliations of his time as President.
In the course of four special programmes starting tonight, he will give his version of the Watergate story that brought his downfall, and the charges that he created an 'Imperial Presidency' in which power was abused. Nixon will also talk about the war he inherited, and the peace he made, and his 'final days' in the White House.

The Battle for the Counties
By going to the polls in this month's local government elections
British voters will have participated in election history - never before has the entire country voted together except in a General Election, nor has there been such a guide as to what might happen in the next General Election.
As the first declarations are made from 54 county councils and metropolitan county councils in England and Wales, David Dimble by - with analyses from David Butler and David Clark-charts the changes of political control.
Robert McKenzie reports from the London headquarters of the council with the biggest electorate, the GLC, and there will be regular reports throughout the programme from BBC regional studios.
Robin Day discusses the impact of the results with representatives of the three major parties, The Rt Hon Peter Shore , mp, The Rt Hon William Whitelaw , mp, and David Penhaligon , mp.

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.
