presented by Robin Ray

A Big Year for Berlioz: with the Berlioz celebrations drawing to a close Bernard Levin has some thoughts on the matter.

Herbert von Karajan Competition: 'What I'm looking for is explosive talent.' 348 thought they had it - 35 were given the chance to prove it at an international conducting competition in Berlin. Music Now invites the winner to make his first appearance in this country.

Another First: the Brazilian pianist Roberto Szidon, who makes his British debut this month.

A Small Celebration: 'I will let the air only vibrate with a small celebration of words' - John Smith. The Michael Garrick Sextet, poets Jeremy Robson and John Smith, and singer Norma Winstone set the air vibrating.

: A Year in the Life for Tony, Rebel Rocker: June 1968-June 1969

"We hate all coppers, I call them the lice of the working class." "I hate moddy boys even worse than coppers." "I don't hate niggers, I just don't like them." "Wilson is the worst thing that ever happened to this country."
Views expressed by a gang of motorbike boys - the Camberley Rockers.
Tonight's film follows the gang, and in particular Tony. In June 1968 he is out of work and he feels misunderstood by a hostile society.

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.
