: Real Lives

Victims and villains, leaders and led, the extraordinary and the ordinary. A new series of filmed documentaries about the way people live now. Viktoria Comes West
When a young Russian girl asked for political asylum at the US Embassy in Stockholm in July 1983, the Soviet Union lost yet another leading musician. At the age of 22 Viktoria Mullova had already won the Tchaikovsky
Competition in Moscow, and had a brilliant future in Soviet music ahead of her. But she decided to defect while on a concert tour of Scandinavia. This film follows Viktoria's first year in the West as the young violinist seeks to establish herself among the top class international soloists. When she arrives in America
Viktoria has to find a New
York agent, an accompanist, and a flat to live in. Her first performance in Toronto is hailed as a triumph. But she has to get used to the pressures and competitiveness of a very different society.

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.
