Trapeze - A Flying Start Narrated by JOHN ROWE
Freddy Osier is a flying trapeze artist. He defies danger twice a day, every day, to excite audiences in some of the world's best circuses. Although he's only 23, his act is so successful that he can live on a tenth of his income and bank the rest. But all this success he owes to his meeting with one man - KEITH ANDERSON , a showman, an artist and a trapeze teacher extraordinary.
This film entered the scene of the deathdefiers and made one see it freshly - by revealing the perfection of human bodies schooled to do something pretty close to the impossible. (DAILY MAIL) Beautiful, brilliant, breathtaking.

The last in the summer season of programmes about the arts in the 20th century. Tonight:
The Pilgrimage of Ti-Jean
Jean Carignan - French Canadian folk fiddler extraordinary - at the age of 60 visits Ireland for the first time in search of the music of Michael Coleman whom he has idolised for half a century.
MICHAEL COLEMAN came from the great fiddle-playing area around Sligo. He died an exile in New York in 1945. In his lifetime Decca cut nearly 80 records of his playing, and in 1928 a copy of one of them fell into the hands of a very young street musician in Montreal. This film shows something of the results.

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.
