For 20 years a small group of film-makers on the South Coast led the world in the production of moving pictures. By 1912, when Hollywood was just beginning, film companies in Brighton had already produced hundreds of comedies, dramas and documentaries.
In the first of a five-part series, film historian John Huntley looks at the surviving films and tells the fascinating stories of the local pioneers who founded a colossal industry.
Tonight: George Albert Smith of Hove, whose little films were hailed as masterpieces.

: Landscapes of England

A series of six programmes
An exploration in the East Midlands with W. G. Hoskins.
2: The Fox and The Covert
No matter what you think of fox hunting, it is a survivor in a colourless age of a little bit of Old England, and it has left its mark on the landscape. But how did it begin and where did it begin? PROFESSOR WILLIAM HOSKINS is able to show us in the East Midlands, and he takes us to places that stir the hearts of hunting people everywhere. The Whissendine brook, Ashby Pastures , Thorpe Trussels , the Vale of Belvoir, Botany Bay, a whole galaxy of places that show how the hunting people adapted the English landscape and used it in all sorts of ways for their own ends.

: Arena: Theatre

This week Arena reassesses the major achievement of an established dramatist, and looks forward to the work of an exciting new one. John Byrne is a Scottish writer with a highly-original comic talent. Arena visits him in Scotland and enters the world of The Slab Boys -his latest play set in a carpet factory in Glasgow and based on his own experiences.
Arnold Wesker 's celebrated Roots trilogy is being revived at the Shaw Theatre, London. It provides a unique chance to reassess a work many regard as an undoubted modern classic. WESKER talks about the trilogy and about his life and work in the 20 years since its first performance.

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.
