: Parents and Children: Music Therapy

Severely handicapped children are cut off from the world; they are isolated from the everyday experiences that normal children enjoy. Paul Barnes and Claire Woolford visit the Goldie Leigh Hospital to see how music is being used to try to break through this communication barrier. This creative use of music is a new and sometimes controversial form of therapy which aims to 'speak' directly to the handicapped child and his emotions, using the language of music to encourage some meaningful activity.

: Cleopatra

A feature film in two parts: 1 starring Elizabeth Taylor
Richard Burton , Rex Harrison with Pamela Brown , George Cole
Hume Cronyn , Cesare Danova
Kenneth Haigh , Roddy McDowall
One of the greatest of all ' super colossal' Hollywood epics, Cleopatra, the story of the life and times of the legendary queen of the Nile, was the ultimate multi-million dollar production. The chequered history of the events surrounding its making have become almost as famous as the history it portrays and no film has had to survive more difficulties on its way to the screen.

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.
