: Americans

by Desmond Wilcox
The last programme in this series: The Immigrant
Leon Stein is a New Yorker. He is also a Trade Union leader, an editor, an author - and a Jew. His parents were immigrants to
America and came through Ellis Island at the turn of the century.
LEON STEIN worked in the rag trade. At 17 he went into a sweat-shop as his mother and father had before him. He learned his trade as a fabric cutter before he became a full-time organiser for the International Ladies Garment Workers' Union, and editor of the union newspaper Justice.
At 65, Leon Stein still feels the powerful pull of his immigrant origins. With the union, he welcomes new immigrants - although these days they are more likely to be Chinese or South American than European. The Trade Union and the rag trade, he claims, are the great Americanisers.

: The Music Makers

The first in a series of seven music features about great 20th-century musicians
Paul Robeson 1898-1976
More than 50 years ago, Paul Robeson sang ' 01' Man River' in the London production of ' Show-boat ' and became a star overnight. Born the son of a slave, he was a gifted athlete and scholar, a fighter for civil rights, and perhaps the greatest black actor and singer America has ever known.
Dame Peggy Ashcroft , Dame Flora Robson , Elisabeth Welch
Andrew Faulds , Paul Robeson Jr are among those who tell the story of a man who rose to international fame, was persecuted for his political beliefs, and ended his life as a recluse.
Inscribed on his gravestone are the words: The artist must elect to fight for freedom or for slavery. I have made my choice. I had no alternative.'

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.
