: The World About Us

Gaucho
The gaucho is Argentina's version of the cowboy. But while the cowboy of North American legend disappeared long ago, in some parts of Argentina the gaucho remains very much as he always was; tough, proud, independent, with his own half-savage code of conduct.
On a cattle ranch in the remote north-eastern province of Corrientes, the gaucho has changed least of all. He dresses like the gauchos of 100 years ago and retains old customs and skills at horse-breaking and cattle herding through the roughest terrain.
Four hundred miles to the south, near the big city of Buenos Aires, the gaucho cult has become sophisticated and self-conscious. Here, myths have grown up around the gaucho, myths that can obscure the fact that in some remote parts of Argentina the gaucho lives on. Narrator JORGE DURRIEU

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. He called it ' An artist's reply to just criticism.' Its theme - ' The Making of a Man.' ' I saw Man with all his experiences in the centre of the composition, which is lyrical in form from the beginning to the end.'

: Sunday Cinema: Tomb of Ligeia

from a story by Edgar Allan Poe.
Starring Vincent Price with Elizabeth Shepherd, Derek Francis, John Westbrook.

At the funeral of his wife Ligeia in 1821, Verden Fell outrages the parson by shrugging off the suggestion that she was not a Christian; in any case, he says, she is not dead. A black cat screeches, and Ligeia's eyes open in the coffin ...

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.
