: Best of British

Ten programmes celebrating areas of excellence in the British arts. 6: Lord Harewood
At the age of 14, GEORGE HARE WOOD realised that ' if I didn't spend a great deal of the rest of my life in opera, I was going to be a good deal less happy than I hoped I was going to be'. Eight years ago he became managing director of the English National Opera, and his time at the Coliseum has seen the company emerge as one of the most innovative and respected houses in Europe. He talks about his love of music and singers, and the English National Opera appear in extracts from La Bohème, The Merry Widow, Salome and Carmen.

Mountbatten and the Beaverbrook Press
Ludovic Kennedy opens this excerpt from the memoirs by saying ' Of all the public events in Lord Mountbatten's life the one that history will deem the least important, yet to which he devotes a considerable part of his filmed memoirs, is the campaign waged against him for almost 20 years by Lord Beaverbrook and his Express newspapers'.

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.
