: The World About Us: The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau: Night of the Squid

When the Calypso anchors over the spawning grounds of the Pacific Coast squid, Jacques Cousteau and his divers have a unique opportunity to make a study of the strange breeding behaviour. For three days thousands of squid concentrate in a frenzy of mating which provides some of the most remarkable film of the voyage.

: Music on 2: Music Now

Presented by Robin Ray

Sebastian Forbes was one of the four winners of the recent Radcliffe String Quartet Competition. Music Now looks at some of the influences which have shaped this young composer's work.

This year the Arts Council will spend nearly £4-million on subsidising music throughout the country and still it is not enough. Music Now goes to Bradford, York, and Teeside to see what the authorities there are, or are not, doing to bring music to their towns.

What music did the Pharaohs sing and dance to?
Mrs Maureen Barwise has recently decoded the hieroglyphics surrounding pictures of the musicians of ancient Egypt. She explains her work, and together with Dr Carl Dolmetsch, Maria Kaufmann, and John Truleaux, performs pieces taking us back 5,000 years.

Is East East?
The Ali Brothers from Pakistan display their stunning vocal virtuosity with Alla Rakha, tabla.

Josephine Nendick, in an interview with Robin Ray, demonstrates how East is nearer West these days when she sings examples from Luciano Berio and John Cage. She is accompanied at and on the piano by John Tilbury.

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.
