: Omnibus

The European Myth of the Oriental Woman.
When Puccini wrote his famous opera, Madam
Butterfly, he presented a vivid picture of the oriental woman - a fragile beauty, submissive and innocent, yet with an inscrutability hinting at exotic secrets waiting to be discovered. But then, as now, the real butterflies were women drawn by their dreams of escape into a life of poverty and prostitution.
Nowadays the fantasy and the tragedy live side by side, in real life as in art. Omnibus tells the story of their embrace, with the help of specially filmed sequences from the current English
National Opera production of Madam Butterfly, plus extracts from M Butterfly and Miss Saigon, two major productions which derive from Puccini's original in very different ways. Researcher DAVID EVANS Film editor JIM LATHAM

: The Late Film: Whose Life Is It Anyway?

Following a car crash, successful young sculptor

This dramatic film is based on the award-winning play by Brian Clark which deals with the controversial subject of euthanasia.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
