: The World About Us

Three Men in a Balloon
Narrated by ANTHONY SMITH
Three intrepid aeronauts take off in a balloon from the grounds of Blenheim Palace. As they float over the English countryside in their antique craft they tell the dramatic, odd. and sometimes hilarious story of ballooning - and of the men who have drifted In these gay silken bubbles at the mercy of the winds in the magic of free flight.

The Three Faces of Jazz
Folk ... Showbiz ... Art
In the 70 years it's been around jazz has been all three. It grew out of the New Orleans community, became an entertainment commodity and finally produced an avant-garde as uncompromising as its counterpart in the world of ' straight' music.
From time to time cameras have been on hand for a moment of jazz history: in 1929, for example, when Duke Ellington's band was supplying ' jungle music ' at the Cotton Club, and in 1932, when Louis Armstrong dressed up and gave an astonishing performance. A 1948 film promoted the Dizzy Gillespie big band, and the legendary Charlie Parker made one brief appearance on celluloid. These and other historic examples have been combined with new material to trace the rapid evolution of jazz and sketch in the social background.
Those appearing include:
Butch Cage and Willie Thomas The Olympia Brass Band Louis Armstrong
The Mardi Gras Indians Alphonse Picou
Lillian Hardin Armstrong
Duke Ellington, Paul Whiteman Tommy Dorsey
The Original Dixieland Jazz Band Lester Young, Norman Granz
Dizzy Gillespie
Charlie Parker Miles Davis
The Modern Jazz Quartet Gunther Schuller
John Dankworth , Dave Brubeck Cecil Taylor , Archie Shepp

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.
