: Play School

A programme for children at home.
This week's guest, Brian Wildsmith

This week Play School has in Brian Wildsmith a very special guest. He is reckoned to be one of the most original illustrators now working in Britain. His illustrations for children's books are internationally known, and he has won prizes such as the Kate Greenaway Medal which was awarded for an Alphabet book.
Today you can see him drawing: on Wednesday he looks at pictures done by three of his four young children: and on Friday he explains some of his own pictures.
(to 11.30)

: Living Camera: Eddie

A crack driver's attempts to win America's most important race.
Tonight you can see how a racing driver prepares for a race he desperately wants to win. The driver is the American Eddie Sachs and the race is the terrifying Indianapolis 500. Sachs won many important races, but never the Indianapolis. The camera unobtrusively follows him as he prepares for the 1961 and 1962 races, and he speaks of his burning ambition to win. How this ambition was frustrated you can see in tonight's film which is co-produced by Time-Life Broadcasts and Drew Associates.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
