: CHRONICLE

THE LEGEND OF THE BORGIAS
An aura of violence, treachery, and even incest surrounds the names of Pope Alexander VI and his children Caesar and Lucretia Borgia. Michael Adams tells the story of this notorious family in a film shot in the places where these dramatic events took place.

THE HIGH ROMAN STYLE by STUART HOOD
The Buildings of the Ancients ... serve as models which we should imitate and as standards which we should judge ROBERT ADAM
The finest period of British architecture was deeply influenced by the great palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian in modern Yugoslavia. It stands to this day as the nucleus of the city of Split, and it was this building which inspired the young Scots architect in much of his best work.
In 1757 Adam wrote back to friends in England: If fortune should favour me highly, I may have the opportunity of reviving something of the old style in England.' His enthusiasm for the place was boundless: he drew it and measured its every detail. His book on The Palace was dedicated to George III, and through him the style of the late Roman Empire produced perhaps the greatest period of British architecture.

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.

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.
