: Europa: Albania - China's Foothold in Europe?

There are no more than two million people in the tiny Mediterranean country of Albania that lies sandwiched between Yugoslavia and Greece. Yet for ten years this small communist state has commanded an importance far beyond its size, ever since Albania broke from Moscow's influence and turned to Peking.
For the first time since then a Western television camera team has been allowed to produce a full colour documentary film on the way of life in Europe's least visited country - Albania.
Introduced by Derek Hart
Produced by Swiss Television

: World Cinema: Repulsion

World Cinema begins its autumn season with the first of three films by the famous Polish director Roman Polanski
Starring Catherine Deneuve, Yvonne Furneaux, John Fraser, Jan Hendry, Patrick Wymark

Polanski's first British film is a chilling study of progressive madness - a companion-piece to Hitchcock's Pyscho.
Left alone in a London flat, a young girl's mind degenerates into madness and obsessive fantasies-but suddenly, stunningly, they become violent reality.

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.
