: McCartney

'I don't try and analyse too much. I think it is dangerous; it is like believing your own myth. I try and keep away from all that. I always try and Write instinctively and hope it comes out right.'
At the beginning of September Paul McCartney releases Press to Play, his 15th album since the Beatles broke up in 1970. During a recent interview with Richard Skinner in Abbey Road Studios, London, Paul talked in detail about his hugely successful career as a composer, performer and recording artist since the Beatles split. The interview also includes rarely-seen archive footage of McCartney and Wings in performance and otherwise unseen film of the Beatles at work in Studio 2, Abbey Road, in the early 60s.

A Spanish Evening

The concert opens with the perfect Spanish picture-postcard, Espana by Emmanuel Chabrier , and ends with more music by Falla: the two suites from his ballet The Three-Cornered Hat.

from Stuttgart, introduced by Desmond Lynam
Arguably bigger in field than on track today, stature wise no contest. The pole vault started at 3.30 and should be about finishing, the Men's 10,000m, due on Tuesday, could still be on today, but all the time in the world won't put TESSA and FATIMA together again.

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.
