: The Front Garden

A highly-acclaimed film which celebrates the English at their favourite pastime, with Candida Lycett Green An old miner builds 13 cathedrals in his front garden. A sailor cuts his hedge into a replica of his wartime destroyer. There are old-fashioned rambling cottage gardens; formal flower-patterned gardens; gardens inhabited by gnomes; gardens made with shells; even a garden without any plants. This glowing film will make you laugh, gasp, and even shed a tear or two. Please watch it. (THE TIMES) Photography PHILIP BONHAM-CARTER Producer EDWARD MIRZOEFF

: SOE: Italian Victory

Eight stories about the Special Operations Executive
Narrated by Michael Bryant
Florence, 11 August 1944
Partisans rise against the Germans and liberate their city. Allied armies wait outside. Links with the Allies are through a secret SOE telephone line across the historic Ponte Vecchio bridge. It was the first major triumph for Italian partisans. For three years Italians had fought alongside the Germans. But in September 1943 they effectively changed sides and Italy itself was invaded by Germany.
SOE and the Italian resistance combined to provide Allies with a vital 'Fourth Arm'. Film cameraman JOHN BECK Film editor MICHAEL FLYNN

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.

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.
