New Lives for Old
Swimming, motorcycling, basketball, tennis, sex; it's all available in Sun City,
Arizona: as long as you're old enough!
A chorus line of show-girls from 60-81 dances for retired judges and ex-industrial tycoons. Hell's Angels on a pension thunder past silverhaired policemen.
Join in the laughter, the banter and the sheer zest for living as people deemed too old to work enthuse about running their very own city. Then wonder at the profligacy of a society that too often throws such a national resource on the scrap-heap.

Requiem received its world premiere at St Thomas's Church in New York last year, and Omnibus cameras were there to record the event for BBCtv. Within weeks the Pie Jesu movement had climbed to the top of the pop charts, and the Requiem itself has since been scheduled for performance in concert halls around the world. Last month the LP of Requiem won a Grammy award for the best contemporary classical recording of 1985 and the music was used for a new ballet by Kenneth MacMillan for the American Ballet
Theatre.

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.
