: The New Masters

At the age of 80 the sculptor Jacques Lipchitz is still working with undiminished energy. He is, as he says, ' not 80 years old, just four times twenty.'
Born, like Chagall, into a Jewish community in Tsarist Russia, he made his name in the brilliant world of pre-war Paris. Since 1941 he has lived in the USA, but this film also shows him at work in Italy.
Lipchitz looks back on his life and work and talks with humour and insight about his lifelong pursuit of artistic freedom.

: Wheelbase

Cliff Michelmore covers the world of motoring with BARRIE GILL , MICHAEL FROSTICK , GORDON WILKINS
Tonight a preview of the National Motor Museum which the Duke of Kent is due to open at Beaulieu in Hampshire next Tuesday. Lord Montagu describes this million-pound monument to the motor car. All the great moments and big names in 75 years of motoring history have their place here.
Tonight's programme, the last of the present series, ends with a question. How much of the freedom which the motor car has won since the days of the red flag must be given up in the years ahead, to preserve some peace and safety in our towns?
(Wheelbase will be back in the autumn)

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.
