: The New Sound of Music

Only a century ago, many of the sounds we now take for granted as music could not even have been imagined - let alone played. Today, synthesisers, computers and multitrack recording techniques give the composer amazing scope and freedom.
In The New Sound of Music, Michael Rodd reveals some of the highlights of this extraordinary story of musical pioneering, and takes you into the magic world of White-Noise, Saw-Tooth, Square-Wave and Digital Sequencers. Part of the film focuses on how the BBC Radiophonic Workshop makes such contrasting music as the Dr Who signature tune and the much-praised background music for Jonathan Miller's The Body in Question.
It also features musicians like Rick Wakeman and others creating intriguingly bizarre, yet often highly melodious sounds using an amazing variety of novel instruments.

: Multi-Racial Britain

The seventh of ten programmes about practical ways of improving race relations. Black and Blue
Young blacks commonly expect unfair treatment in dealings with the police. Now some police are making special efforts to regain their confidence. Made in Leeds, Birmingham and London this film shows ways they are attempting to break down stereotypes held by the West Indian community - and also to ensure that stereotypes are not built up in the minds of policemen themselves.

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.
