Communication Code
Whizz is busy cracking codes today and makes Bug feel a little 'off colour'. Voice practises his knowledge of home-base back words and deciphers Whizz's question, '?Elzzup txen eht si tahw'. In the Earthsearch, Whizz solves the last part and the small knob goes back where it belongs. This time the clue is a cassette, but what's it for? Voice gives a further clue.

Courtney Pine and the New Jazz
More alive now than at any time since the 1950s, British jazz has seen a drastic transformation since the days when it was made up of 'middle-class English people trying to be black'. Now young black musicians as well as whites are in the vanguard of the current revival, drawing on their background of soul, funk and reggae to revitalise jazz. Twenty-two year old saxophonist Courtney Pine plays and talks about the new sound, with performances from The Jazz Warriors
The Clark Tracey Quintet and Steve Williamson and comments from
Tommy Chase , Man Wilson Gail Thompson , jazz photographer Val Wilmer and veteran performers
Stan Tracy and George Melly. Film editors

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.
