: Review: Three Voices on Their Own

Review takes another look at the arts from America introduced by David Jones.

In writing: John Hawkes, once called 'America's greatest unread novelist,' writer of weird, baroque novels of an imaginary Europe - the ruins of Germany in The Cannibal, an English race-course gang in The Lime Twig, sex and sensuality in a landscape called Illyria in his latest book The Blood Oranges.

In music: Rahsaan Roland Kirk, now appearing at Ronnie Scott's Club in London, black virtuoso player of saxophone, 'stritch,' 'manzello, 'flute, 'black mystery pipes,' thundersheet, 'sock cymbal,' bird sounds, the harmonium - and all of them simultaneously! A performance that needs to be seen as well as heard.

In architecture: Paolo Soleri, now building against all reasonable odds his own vast city in the Arizona desert. Soleri is the inventor of schemes for gigantic structures for living in-some of them a mile or more high, and certainly the most extraordinary solutions yet presented to combat the urban sprawl and the destruction of our environment.

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.
