The first of 17 programmes.
In Iran, Baha'is are being imprisoned, tortured and executed. In the rest of the world, three million Baha'is are setting up a computerised structure for an alternative world government.
The Baha'i faith began as a 19th-century offshoot of Islam. Today it's the fastest growing new religion in the world. In the first of a new international series, "Everyman" slips behind the lines of "The Quiet Revolution" to report on the Baha'i mission to establish God's Kingdom on Earth.

A musical biography in six programmes
1: The Child Prodigy
Presented by Jane Glover
The London Mozart Players leader JOHN GLICKMAN
Deborah Rees (soprano) Ian Richardson
Robin Bailey
'I could name you a dozen grown-up composers whose symphonies weren't half as good as this.'
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart 's extraordinary career began at the age of 6, when his violinist father took him on tour around the royal courts of Europe. By the age of 8 he was writing orchestral symphonies; by 18 he was producing works of true genius, like his 29th
Symphony (K 201). But the story begins in sleepy, provincial 18th-century Salzburg, where Leopold Mozart was vice-kapellmeister to the ruling Prince Archbishop. Written by VICTOR POOLE and JANE GLOVER

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.
