: The World About Us

Bahia is the city where Brazil began 430 years ago. First the Portuguese came with swords in their hands, then the slaves - three and a half million of them - with chains on their feet. They built a city they call Bahia -The Bay. No other town in the new world has preserved so many traces of Africa with its finery, its cadences, its palm-oil stews, its cults and-above all-the exciting rhythms of its music and dances. In this musical portrait of a city, we follow little Roberto Santos a 12-year-old black boy-around his Bahia to discover the mysteries of Capoeira and Candombole, the excitement of Maculele and Samba, the way of life of a million people.

: Earl Wild

The American pianist Earl Wild specialises in romantic piano music of notorious technical difficulty. His performances have been partly responsible for the revival of interest in music written by and for the great virtuosi of the last century.
In this programme he talks to Robin Ray about his opinions and attitudes to this kind of music, and plays works by Chopin, Liszt and Liszt's pupil, d'Albert.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
