: Omnibus

Bill T Jones
In the hothouse of the American dance world, choreographer Bill T
Jones is one of the brightest stars. His 1990 work, Last
Supper at Uncle Tom's Cabin, shocked New York audiences with its confrontation of racism, sexism, sexuality, religion and Aids, but brought standing ovations at its close when, every evening, the stage was occupied by 50 naked dancers.
Mischa Scorer's Omnibus film follows Jones and his company duringthe creation of Last
Supper, and explores the events in Jones's own life that inform his radical dance style.
Born to a poor farming family in upstate New York, athlete
Jones went to college to study theatre and in 1971 metArnie
Zane, the man who was to become his lover, life-long partner and co-founder of the dance company. When Zane died from an Aids-related illness in 1988, Jones's world was shattered; Last Supper at Uncle Tom's Cabin is, in part, his response to that loss.

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.
