Introduced by Cliff Michelmore
There was a time when all ski resorts were based on existing villages - developed by the local community to provide them with a winter income. Now a growing number are purpose-built for the sport and Tom Savage went to the French Alps to look at one - La Plagne. Can it develop the atmosphere old-style resorts provide?
Florence is a purpose-built city-built to reflect the grandeur of its medieval rulers. It has become one of Italy's main tourist attractions but can its grandeur survive its popularity? John Carter reports. In the first of his contributions to this series, Paul Hughes reports on a special interest weekend in Brimingham - for photographers - learner and experienced amateur.

Cimabue's Cross Comes to Town
Cimabue's famous masterpiece is 700 years old. It was stolen by Hitler, bombed by the Allies and damaged by the 1966 floods in Florence. Now restored, it is on show at London's Royal Academy. Is its restoration a triumph or a disaster? Should so important a work be dragged around the world? With Waldemar Januszczak , Stavros Miholarias and Wynford Vaughan-Thomas who saved it from the Germans and the Allies. In 1965 the tv arts programme Monitor declared Alasdair Gray dead. He wasn't. Last year, still in the best of health, this Glaswegian painter and writer won the first Scottish Literary Award for his novel Lanark. A new book. Unlikely Stories Mostly, had just been published. Frank Delaney risks an interview with this highly individual artist, tries to explore his anarchic visual and literary worlds, but ends up by having his portrait painted.
Radu Lupu plays Schubert's Impromptu No 2, in A flat.

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.
