: Times Remembered

Joan Bakewell talks with Oscar Deutsch's widow, Lilly Joseph

Oscar Deutsch, a Birmingham metal merchant, started a chain of cinemas in the 30s. He chose a classical name for his cinemas, a name that embodied his own initials: Odeon.
The Odeon empire brought to the British cinema a standard and comfort hitherto unknown and a positively unforgettable style of architecture. Oscar's wife Lilly designed most of the Odeon interiors: seats, carpets and those twirly-whirly bits on the ceilings.

: Music on 2: Workshop: The Orchestra is Alive and Well

Bernard Keeffe with the New Philharmonia Orchestra
leader Desmond Bradley

The great Romantic Orchestra is a glorious expressive instrument. The colour of the sound becomes as important as the notes being played.
Bernard Keeffe shows how this instrument has developed since the days of Haydn and Mozart, and argues that, so far from dying, the orchestra still offers great opportunities for today's composers, like John McCabe who discusses his own use of the orchestra and introduces a movement from his First Symphony.
Illustrations also include excerpts from works by Beethoven, Berlioz, Wagner, Strauss, Debussy, Webern and Lutoslawski.

: Man Alive: Stars in their Eyes

Reporters Jim Douglas Henry, Jeremy James, Jeanne La Chard, John Pitman, Desmond Wilcox, Harold Williamson

This week: Stars in their Eyes
It's not very long since respectable parents thought of fashion modelling as being a step on the road to ruin for their daughters. But the swinging 60s changed all that, and today there are over 80 model agencies in London alone - and a rash of model schools - which cater for the dreams of girls ambitious to earn fame and fortune with their figures.
What is the truth? Man Alive looks at the chic fagade and the seamy side of the world where model girls are fashioned.

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.

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.
