: The New Masters

Whatever happened to Bubbles or The Laughing Cavalier? Why does the art of this century seem obscure or outrageous to so many of us? Is it worth the money? Are they having us on? This film introduces a new series about major figures of the 20th century, painters, sculptors, architects - some of the New Masters.
It tries to show how the ' isms' of modern art are neither abstruse theories nor confidence tricks, but the reactions of men who happened to be artists to the changing world of the 20th century.
Written and narrated by JIM DOUGLAS HENRY

: Wheelbase

Cliff Michelmore covers the world of motoring, with Barrie Gill and Gordon Wilkins
Will new safety laws coming into force in the United States make British cars more crashproof or just more expensive? Is the more efficient braking and road holding of the European car not a better solution than bigger bumpers and extra padding for the passengers? A report from the third International Safety Conference in Washington.
From France, highlights of the 24 hours race at Le Mans, the classic event for sports cars, in which drivers and engineers have long pioneered safety features for the family car.

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.
