: The World About Us

The Year of the Green Centre Narrated by BARRY PAINE
Australia's wettest year on record brought floods and disaster to many areas. Central Australia is the driest part of this driest of permanently inhabited continents, yet even this had been deluged. It turned green almost overnight. A normally drought-gripped land was awakened into the most vividly spectacular bloom of desert Howers and animals in living memory. The desert rains triggered birds into breeding and produced abundant food for insects, lizards, mice and men.

: Andre Previn

conducts the London Symphony Orchestra leader JOHN BROWN in a performance of Shostakovich Symphony No 5
In' 1936 Shostakovich became the target for many bitter attacks - political and artistic. In his native Russia his music was ignored; professionally, most of his colleagues shunned him.
Despite this, his reply was not a mumbled apology but the courageous, magnificent Fifth Symphony.

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.
