Oh come, let us sing to the Lord (Bo Accord); Jesus loves me! (Gaelic lullaby); Ye gates, lift up your heads (St
George's, Edinburgh); Our blest Redeemer (St Cuthbert); I waited for the Lord my God (St Columba); A cry in the night (Notting Hill); I to the hills will lift mine eyes (Dundee); Blessing and honour and glory and power.

: Omnibus

with Richard Baker

"Landscape in Britain", a major Arts Council Exhibition at London's Hayward Gallery, presents a fascinating vision of Britain as seen by over 200 artists from 1850-1950. The Rt Hon Roy Hattersley, MP, examines the picture of Britain that emerges from the show.

Richard Long is a very modem British artist who works in and with the landscape. He wants to make images which "work on the earth and the mind". Thus he moves stones, chronicles long walks and shifts the earth. His work has taken him to remote places and brought him an international reputation. For Omnibus he worked on the landscape of Dartmoor.

Siobhan Davies is one of our leading young choreographers. Her new ballet for the London Contemporary Dance Theatre is based on Bach's "Musical Offering"; it has been premiered at Oxford and now goes on tour.

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.
