'It's Simply a Place Where Things Happen'
The Place, off London's Euston Road, is the home of films that don't get showings on the circuits, of drama, music, sculpture shows and painting - and of the London Contemporary Dance Theatre - artistic director Robert Cohan whose new season started this week. Review presents a portrait of 'The Place' - Robin Howard, its founder and director, Robert Powell, guest soloist, and the famous Anna Sokolow, who staged the New York version of Hair, rehearsing for the forthcoming London performances of her new ballet Scenes from the Music of Charles Ives.

The Groans of Gormenghast
In 1946, the late Mervyn Peake published Titus Groan - the first of his 'Gothic' trilogy. These books are as extraordinary as the illustrations Peake did, not only for his own stories but even more for other writers' fantasy worlds.
To mark the National Book League's exhibition of his work, Review takes a look at his worlds - in pictures and in prose.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
