: The World About Us

Grease Paint and Chopsticks - Chinese Travelling Theatre
Narrated by ROBERT CUSHMAN
MADAME SOH is an exquisite artist, the star of a small theatre company which travels the roads of Thailand playing to audiences drawn from among the millions of emigre Chinese scattered throughout the,Far East.
The living is rough - meals and sleep are snatched between performances, which can last up to seven hours, every day of the year. Everyone helps to erect the stage, hump costumes and props; backstage is always cramped, chaotic and temporary. Yet once on stage they are performers as polished as any in the world.
Chinese Theatre defies western categories - melodrama, farce, opera, pantomime are all mixed to produce a spectacle with which companies like Madame Soh's dazzle their audiences and keep alive the culture and traditions of Old China.
Presented by CLEM VALLANCE Series editors ANTHONY ISAACS and CHRISTOPHER PARSONS

: Beyond the Boundaries

Entertainment - World Wide
A musical panorama highlighting the beauty, power and daring of the human in motion.
To most, the boundaries of sport will forever be the chalked rectangle of the football field ... or the ropes of the fighting ring ... or the red oval track where the runner's last enemy is time itself. But there are wider boundaries; and those ever-variable barriers, the cliff-edge of endurance and the breaking-point of the human nerve.

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.

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.
