The John Player League Derbyshire v Middlesex direct from The Park, Buxton.
Could 1972 be Middlesex's year? Certainly this very experienced side have made their best start in both the County Championship and the League for many years and under the astute captaincy of Mike Brearley may well recapture the form which made them such a fine side in the late 40s.
Derbyshire are also well placed in the League. In the televised match against Yorkshire, Fred Trueman showed that he has lost none of his glamour nor crowd appeal.

: Music on 2

Fou Ts'ong
The only thing which makes me go on living is to have the chance to fulfil myself -in my case, it is to make music.
Fou Ts'ong's education was supervised by his father, who gave him a deep understanding of Chinese culture; his training as a pianist made him aware of the Western musical tradition. Both these influences have left him with the dilemma of being a deeply com-
[ mitted patriot who feels he can only survive as an artist by living away from China.
This evening's film is centred on FOU TS'ONG'S continual preparations for concerts. He is seen in rehearsal with Kyung Wha Chung and in conversation with Martin Bernal about modern China. It is a film about the isolation of an artist whose admiration for Mao Tse-tung brings him into continual conflict with the art he must practise for his own survival.

: The World About Us

Spirit of the Samurai
There were Samurai, a kind of knight errant armed with long sword and bow, wandering about Japan as recently as 150 years ago.
People who have seen the- film The Seven Samurai will have a pretty good idea of what a Samurai was. What they may not know is that the spirit and practice of the Samurai have not passed away from modern Japan; hidden in secluded parts of the country, secret schools still exist to preserve the techniques and beliefs of these fierce and fearsome warriors.

: Tutankhamun's Egypt

A series of 13 programmes
12: World of the Gods
The religion of the Ancient Egyptians appears both strange and exotic. There are a great number of gods and many of them take. animal forms, like baboons and ibises. The stories the Egyptians created about them are even more fantastic.
In fact, the whole system is rooted in the everyday experience of the Egyptian people. From the daily cycle of the sun and the yearly cycle of the Nile, the Egyptians drew their imagery for the creation of the world and the continuance of its well-being.

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.
