: Omnibus

King's College Choir
An intimate portrait of the King's College Choir, best known and loved for its festival of nine lessons and carols at
Christmas. Founded in 1451, by King Henry VI, the choir's main purpose is to provide a daily service of evensong and to perform the repertoire of great cathedral music.
This world famous choir is made up of undergraduate choral scholars from
Cambridge University and young choristers who attend King's College School.
Omnibus talks to the choristers about their fears and aspirations and watches them at rehearsal, at play and in performance.
It's a constantly changing world. At the end of the summer, some of the choristers leave at around the age when their voices break and lose the magic of the boy treble. In the autumn, there is a fresh intake of youngsters, and of course, the build up to the renowned carol service.
Also taking part in the programme are Stephen Cleobury , the Director of Music, the school's headmaster Gerald Peacocke and composer, Judith Weir. ProducerJill Evans

: Midnight Cowboy

Tonight's Movie Classic is
John Schlesinger 's modern tale about an odd couple starring Dustin Hoffman
Jon Voight
Joe Buck is as naive as he is blue-eyed and handsome. When he arrives in a garish New York he thinks he'll find sex, adventure and money. What the "cowboy" finds in alien territory is just one friend -
Ratso Rizzo. They strike up one of the most unusual partnerships in screen history. Intermittently sad, funny, brutal and always gripping, it features memorable performances from Hoffman and Voight and won three Oscars - for best picture, director and screenplay.

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.
