: A Sound of Dolphins

Whistling and clicking their way around the oceans, dolphins have the scientists baffled with this mysterious underwater' language.' Jacques Cousteau and his divers go in search of the dolphins, hoping to reveal how they steer by sound and communicate not only with one another but with man as well.
Some of the most dramatic scenes that Cousteau has filmed take place off the African coast, as man and dolphins combine forces and go fishing together.
Produced by Metromedia Producers Corporation (from Bristol)

: Music on 2

Andre Watts introduces and plays works by Bernstein, Schubert and Liszt.
At 26, Andre Watts is one of America's foremost young pianists, acclaimed for his virtuoso performances of such formidably difficult works as the Don Juan Fantasy by Liszt included in tonight's programme. In his first appearance on BBCtv he also talks about and plays Liszt's Fountains at the Villa d'Este and the Sonata in A minor, Op 143, by Schubert. Watts made his debut as a 16-year-old soloist under conductor-composer Leonard Bernstein , and he opens this recital with his own ingenious transcription of Bernstein's Candide Overture.

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.
