: Beauty is in the Eye

Every society has its own idea of beauty. This series of films looks at some of them. Solomon Bride
We shall never know what the beauties described in the 'Song of Solomon' were really like, but perhaps the face of Lea Avraham , a Yemeni dancer, gives us an idea as she prepares for the stage role of King Solomon's daughter.

: War at Sea

Battleship Bismarck
Written and presented by Ludovic Kennedy
The story of how the ship Hitler called 'the pride of the German Navy' was shadowed and sent to the bottom by the British Fleet. It was one of the most fantastic chases in the history of naval warfare. It lasted for seven days and, during it, 3,500 men died. At stake was the vital convoy route to America.
For Ludovic Kennedy it is a very personal story. As Sub-Lieutenant in the destroyer HMS Tartar he took part in the pursuit, and witnessed the final destruction of Bismarck. In this film he tells the story of her last voyage with the help of those on either side who were there.

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.
