This week:

By-Line: Ernest Hemingway
On the publication of this new book seven years after his death, Mary Hemingway talks to Irving Wardle in New York about her husband.
"Everybody is always telling me about his past, and a lot of it is fiction.
How did he treat women? He loved them. I don't think he understood them very well.
In the last year he was mentally ill, let's face it. And knew it.
I wouldn't want to publish anything he would not wish to publish."

Judi Dench Stars in "Cabaret"
The young actress who has won awards in the theatre, films, and this year as television's "Best Actress", approaches a new landmark in her career. Next week she opens in the hit American musical Cabaret as Sally Bowles. She is filmed preparing for this new venture.

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.

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.
