: China

Times of Jade and Bronze Produced by MICHAEL GILL
The Communist takeover in 1949 led not only to a great urge to modernise but also to a renewed interest in China's past. As a result a dazzling display of Chinese art has been unearthed and some of the most exciting discoveries are about to go on show in London.
To put the exhibition in the context of China past and present, Professor William Watson of London University and Magnus Magnusson journeyed across the vast sub-continent, the first time a foreign film crew had been allowed to get so close to everyday life and to many of the sites where the treasures were discovered.
In this first of two films Watson and Magnusson look at modern China and sketch in its early history.

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

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.
