: Imagine....

4/9. The Movie Brats Take Two. During the 1970s, Hollywood flourished with a number of intelligent films directed by the likes of Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese. But over time the studios returned to churning out formulaic, star-driven blockbusters. Nearly 30 years later, Imagine ... focuses on a new group of directors intent on revitalising the industry. Like their forerunners, Wes Anderson (whose film
The Royal Tenenbaums follows at 11.30pm), Richard Linklater and Sofia Coppola aim to make personal films that express their own distinctive voices. Alan Yentob asks how they radicalised US cinema.
Director Adrian Sibley ; Executive producer Janet Lee

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.
