: The British Academy Film Awards

Live from London's Leicester Square Odeon, the prestigious ceremony celebrating the best in British and international film-making over the past year, hosted once again by Stephen Fry.

Among the films likely to make an impact tonight are Martin Scorsese's The Aviator with 14 nominations, Finding Neverland with 12, and Vera Drake with 11, including one for the film's British director Mike Leigh. Other home-grown hopefuls include Kate Winslet and Imelda Staunton, who between them received three nominations in the Actress in a Leading Role category. A host of famous faces, including Juliette Lewis, Cate Blanchett, Pierce Brosnan and Sienna Miller will be presenting the awards. Special presentations include the Academy Fellowship and the Michael Balcon Award for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema, and there's the all-important Film of the Year category, as voted for by the public.

Today's Choices: Entertainment: The British Academy Film Awards 8.10pm BBC1
The Baftas have traditionally taken place on a Sunday night but this year they've moved to Saturday - what better night for a glamorous movie bash packed with celebs? Kate Winslet will be competing not only against Imelda Staunton for Vera Drake but against herself in the best actress category, as she's been nominated for both Finding Neverland and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. But the night could belong to director Martin Scorsese and his Howard Hughes biopic The Aviator, which is shortlisted in a whopping 14 categories. As usual, Stephen Fry will host the event, in his nicely sardonic way. (David Butcher)

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.
