: All in a Day

A series of five new films which concentrate on a few hours of intense activity. 1: The Candidate
It took three hours for Braintree Labour Party to choose its new prospective Parliamentary candidate. For the first time, film cameras were allowed to film the proceedings without restriction.
It happened on 20 May 1972. Four men faced the selecting delegates. In three hours, three of them were eliminated. The fourth would fight the next General Election as Labour's candidate.
Five film cameras were at the conference. They covered the speeches and balloting in the main hall, and they watched the candidates backstage as they waited and wondered - and finally were told the result.

Andre Tchaikowsky
Three Fantasies for Piano by Mozart, Schumann and Chopin
ANDRÉ TCHAIKOWSKY, the young Polish-born pianist who has now made his home permanently in this country, plays a Fantasy by the ' classical' Mozart alongside two works of the same title by the ' romantic' Schumann and Chopin. Although all the pieces are called Fantasies, in other respects they are very different. Mozart is at his most romantic; paradoxically the Chopin and Schumann works have an almost classical form and structure.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
