: Eye for the Future: Patrick Geddes 1854-1932

The story of a Scot who was called a 'magnificent failure,' also a 'secret hero.' Patrick Geddes was the father of modern town-planning, a professor of botany who never took a degree, the originator of the saying that specialism means knowing more and more about less and less.
He was a man who bubbled over with ideas - ideas about life and living, about sex and education, and a host of other subjects.
His failures were due to the fact that he was always from 50 to 100, perhaps 200, years before his time

: Midnight Movie Beautiful But Dangerous

starring
Gina Lollobrigida with Vittorio Gassman , Robert Alda
Gina Lollobrigida plays the Italian soprano Lina Cavalieri in this screen biography, directed by Robert Z. Leonard , which also features the voice of the famous Italian tenor Mario del Monaco. Lina Cavalieri is torn between a Russian prince who once rescued her from a gang of hoodlums in a Roman theatre; Mario Silvani , a tenor who launches her into a career as an opera singer; and her teacher Maestro Doria whose attentions are unwelcome.
Eventually the threads are brought together at a performance of Tosca in front of the Russian Tsar's court.

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.
