: The World About Us

The Magical Indian Roadshow
Singers, dancers, actors, mimics, storytellers, acrobats, conjurers, puppeteers, snake-charmers. These are the people who bring entertainment to the village squares of India, giving a touch of magic to the remotest hamlet and the poorest peasant family.
The entertainers spend their lives on the move, carrying most of their possessions with them. This film follows them from village to village and even to the Maharajah's palace. It shows their lives on the road and also their attempts to attract a new audience in the cities - often against enormous odds. Narrator JAMILA MASSEY

: Byron-Pushkin-Auden

A Platform Performance of Poetry from the National Theatre Introduced by Sir Peter Hall
Byron's irreverent portrait of Don Juan reaches across continents to infect Pushkin's Eugene Onegin, a Russian Byronic hero found wanting. Across a century as World War II approaches Europe, Byron's example spurs W. H. Auden in his letter from Iceland to an exuberant dance on the volcano's edge.
As well as plays the National Theatre performs poetry because poetry is language at its most potent. Recently these platform performances have been taken on tour and this programme of excerpts from the three poems was recorded at Goldsmiths' College Theatre, University of London. Don

: Grand Prix

Covering motor-racing's Formula One World Championship on Sundays through the summer.
Highlights of today's race at the Paul Ricard circuit. The JPS Lotus cars of championship leader Mario Andretti and Ronnie Peterson looked set to dominate the rest of the season when they finished first and second in both Belgium and Spain. But in Sweden Niki Lauda came back into the reckoning, though his victory in the controversial new Brabham brought protests from rival teams.

The 1970s version of Decameron continues tonight. In The Job, Visconti poses the problem of a rich wife who wants to earn her own money: after a chat with the call-girls her husband frequents, she has an idea of how to do it. De Sica has Sophia Loren offer herself as a prize in The Raffle, a very popular ploy, except with the young man who loves her. The Job The Raffle

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.
