: The Twenties Revisited

with Rene Cutforth
' They were on the wing - in flight from guilt. They flew on the wings of Peter Pan - they were determined not to grow up; or the wings of alcohol and cocaine - they were determined not to sober up; on the wings of speed, of sex, of the spirit of competition ... They never touched down until the final crash-landing in 1929.' Thus, in a highly personal account, RENÉ CUTFORTH sums up the spirit of the Twenties - the ecade which began in the shadow of the first Great World War and ended with the stock-market crash which plunged us into the Depression. These hectic years saw the start of commercial aeroplanes, bobbed hair, Noel Coward , the BBC and the Picture Palace.
Written and narrated by RENÉ CUTFORTH

: The Philpott File

South Africa Faces Television A series of four reports by Trevor Philpott
3: The Black Future
The blacks of South Africa have been promised their own television service to be run by blacks for blacks - but not until 1880. This film was shot entirely in Soweto, the largest of the black townships. It looks at the way the blacks there entertain themselves, at the kind of black talent hidden in the township streets and shows the sort of programmes that they themselves would like to see when they get their own television channel. And very surprising much of the material turns out to be.

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.
