: The World About Us

The Magnificent Adventure
Narrated by Cliff Michelmore
The Whitbread Round-the-World Race provided the ultimate challenge to the 177 men and women who made up the crews of the 17 yachts which sailed from Portsmouth last September.
It was the longest and toughest ocean race ever attempted - a journey of 27,000 miles and seven months at sea. Yachts capsized, masts were lost over the side and three men died when they were washed overboard by the fury of the southern oceans. Film cameras accompanied the competitors around Cape Horn and back by way of Cape Town, Sydney and Rio de Janeiro.

: The Great Orchestras

One of a series of films featuring the world's leading orchestras.
The London Symphony Orchestra conductor Andre Previn
The orchestra was founded in 1904 as a result of Henry Wood 's ultimatum to his Queen's Hall Orchestra that there should in future be no deputies. The musicians' livelihood depended on taking freelance engagements and to avoid losing this lucrative source of income they formed themselves into a self-governing orchestra.
The music extracts include: Beethoven Symphony No 7 Berlioz Corsair Overture Hoist The Planets
Shostakovich Symphony No 8
Vaughan Williams Symphony No 5 Walton Portsmouth Point
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto with soloist Kyung-Wha Chung
Filmed in London's Royal Festival Hall and in Salzburg during the festival.
A splendid sense of briskness and buoyancy stamped the programme at the outset and sustained it all through

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.
