: The World About Us

Journey to the Outer Limits
'I can't breathe and my feet are cold and I ain't climbing no mountain ...'
This was the reaction of one American teenager who gave up his climb not far from the top of a 19,000 ft Andean mountain peak. He and 19 other youths were part of the most gruelling Outward Bound expedition ever. It takes them first through incredible levels of stress and physical challenge during an intense wilderness survival and mountain climbing course in Colorado. They are pushed beyond limits they never dreamed they could reach.
They start as an ill-matched group. Through their interaction, and particularly through three students, we experience the anxieties and exhilaration of their journey to the outer limits.

: Gustav Holst

1874-1934
A Double Life in Music devised and introduced by John Amis
Yes, Holst is cold occasionally, but it is the cold that approximates to intense heat.
(RALPH VAUGHAN WILLIAMS)
Gustav Holst , best known for his famous Planets Suite, was born in Cheltenham on 21 September 1874. This film illustrates the contrasting styles of his music and his life as teacher and composer.
Imogen Hoist talks about her father and conducts The Linden Singers in Thaxted Church in Essex where he lived for a time. She also conducts the Band of the Royal Military School of Music playing her father's First Suite for Military Band.
Sheila Armstrong (soprano) and Hugh Bean perform songs for voice and violin; and John Lill plays the Toccata for piano in Hoist's music-room at St Paul's Girls' School, Hammersmith, where he taught for many years. Two of his former pupils, Edmund Rubbra the composer and Irene Swann , remember him.

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.
