: The World About Us

The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau
Hippo! ,
How do you persuade an irate hippo to pose for your underwater cameras? On an inland expedition to study the wildlife of Africa's internal shorelines, Cousteau tries several methods. A plastic life-sized hippo called ' Lolita,' concealing two divers, proves hilarious but unsuccessful; two remote-controlled cameras are smashed by a charging hippo. There is nothing left but to dive with the hippos.

: Poulenc

Devised and introduced by John Amis
Francis Poulenc , one of the French composers in the group known as Les Six, died ten years ago. His music displays two aspects of his character: the charmer of 1920s Paris and the serious side of his later choral works. His life and music are recalled by baritone Pierre Bernac with Georges Auric and Darius Milhaud , two survivors of the group. The film was shot in and around Poulenc's Loire home and in the Dordogne.
Georgina Parkinson dances the Adagietto from Les Biches; excerpts from Poulenc's work are played by JACQUES FÉVRIER (piano), ROBERT CASIER (oboe) and GERARD FAISANDIER (bassoon). STEPHEN VARCOE (baritone) and JONATHAN ALDER (piano), JENNIFER SMITH (soprano) and JOHN FRASER (piano) take part in a Master Class.

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.
