: The Unanswered Question

Leonard Bernstein at Harvard
In the second of six lectures, LEONARD BERNSTEIN , Charles Eliot Norton Professor of Poetry at Harvard University, discusses Musical Syntax
Using Chomskyan techniques of transformational grammar he digs beneath the surface to uncover the ' deep structure ' of music. The point is made effectively and humorously by the performance of a ' prose ' version of part of the first movement of Mozart's Symphony No 40, specially written by LEONARD BERNSTEIN and played by the BOSTON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
An Amberson Video Production recorded by WGBH, Boston

: A Third Testament

Malcolm Muggeridge pays tribute to six men whose lives spanned the story of Christendom - men of outstanding genius whom he sees as six characters in search of God. 1: St Augustine - who lived in the last twilight of the Roman Empire, yet who was confronted by problems very like our own. ' There will be an end to every earthly kingdom and if this is actually the end now, God sees.'
Director JEREMY MURRAY-BROWN Produced by NIELSEN-FERNS LTD A TIME LIFE film

: The World About Us

Killing Trade with Hugh Falkus
Few animals die of old age. Most are killed by other animals - professional hunters whose natural way of life is dealing death on a grand scale.
Tiny shrews, packs of wild dogs, our own domestic cats - all these have reached the top of their trade, and have developed their tools and techniques for killing. Yet animals such as lions and wolves are gangsters only in our eyes. And it is their highly skilled and selective killing which has actually helped to generate the richness of wildlife.
Nevertheless, there are problems in being one of nature's hitmen ... and how do we fit into the Killing Trade?

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.
