: Edinburgh Military Tattoo

Highlights from the floodlit esplanade of Edinburgh Castle. This year the Tattoo celebrates the 350th anniversary of the Scots Guards with a spectacular display of pageantry, music and dance. Making its first appearance in Edinburgh is the world pioneer of military bands, the Mehter Band from Turkey, whose origins date back to the 13th century. And among the 120-strong Massed Pipes and Drums is the Band of Adelaide University, Australia. The Tattoo's 150 dancers, gathered from all over Scotland, perform a medley of Highland and Scottish country dances. The colourful spectacle of the Massed Bands of Her Majesty's Royal Marines lead into the traditional finale and the evocative lone piper.

: Miss Marple:a Caribbean Mystery

The last of three classic Miss Marple stories, based on Agatha Christie's books, stars Joan Hickson.
Sent on a recuperative holiday to the tropical paradise of Barbados, Miss Marple is finding it rather a dull place where nothing seems to occur. But it soon turns out to be a Garden of Eden where a dangerous serpent lurks.
Producer George Gallaccio chose the film location for this Miss Marple story purely by chance, not realising that he was using the same hotel that Agatha Christie herself did 30 years earlier. He also discovered that the real hotel owners had provided Christie with the inspiration for two of the characters (Tim and Molly Kendal) in the book.

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.
