: Buskers

Second of two programmes Underground
The sound of music can be exciting or annoying when heard down a corridor in London's Underground. It brings some life to the dead tunnels with their endless rush of feet - but it is illegal! The Buskers play a constant ' cops and robbers ' game with London Transport Police, who have to enforce the law by arresting or moving them on. Professional musicians of skill and virtuosity often mingle and improvise with amateurs - violinists, guitarists, folk singers and even out-of-work school-leavers play together. They are all trying to earn a living.
Watch their hazardous and entertaining lives when the cameras follow them ' underground '.

: Nye

A play by PAUL FERRIS , starring and with Dudley Jones , Timothy Bateson
Aubrey Richards , Rachel Thomas Gerald James , Reginald Marsh
Twenty-five years ago, in 1957, the British political scene was in turmoil-as it is today. There was nuclear confrontation in Europe, disillusion at home and crisis in the Labour Party. At the centre of it all was neither a Prime Minister nor a Leader of the Opposition but a miners' hero from Wales whose oratory was a legend, whose legacy is the National Health Service, and whose life remains an enigma - Aneurin Bevan.

with Barry Norman
Anton Dolin was Britain's first male ballet star. Best known for his partnership with Alicia Markova , he was also famous as a film and theatre performer before the Second World War. Today, at 77, Sir Anton is still active - travelling the world as a teacher and choreographer. On the eve of the publication of Dolin, Friends and Memories, he talks, with the aid of some rare film, of Dolin in action, of his life as a dancer and the people he knew and worked with - Diaghilev, Nijinsky, Cocteau and Picasso.
Susan Hill's first book for seven years, The Magic Apple Tree, describes the changing seasons in an Oxfordshire village. But a sense of belonging and community spirit have their price. Has the contentment she has found in country life prevented her from writing novels?

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.
