: The World About Us

Flamenco Triangle
Narrated by Michael Flanders
Deep in the south-west corner of Spain lies one of the most fascinating regions in Europe, the Flamenco - or flamingo - Triangle. It is a land shared by colourful people and colourful wildlife, their lives strongly intertwined. But life is beginning to change.
What will happen to this land of bulls and horses, flamingos and eagles, flamenco and fiesta? What will become of the great sand dunes like the Sahara, the vast marshes full of wildfowl, the famous Coto Dofiana , and the remarkable pilgrimage to the Lady of the Dew?
Series editors ANTHONY ISAACS and CHRISTOPHER PARSONS (from Bristol)

: Leonard Bernstein's Mass

A Theatre Piece for
Singers, Players and Dancers
Last month 200 Yale University students - average age 21 - gave the European premiere of Bernstein's Mass. Cameras were in the Vienna Konzerthaus to record a special TV version for BBC.
Mass is not a mass in the ordinary sense: it is an entertainment for the young-minded. The text, from the liturgy of the Roman mass with additional words by Stephen Schwartz and the composer, is about faith and people's reaction to it.
Introduced by Leonard Bernstein THE YALE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA is joined by members of the VIENNA SINGAKADEMIE and the VIENNA KNABENCHOR (BG XXl)

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.
