: Network: The Musick Meeting

A series of programmes made specially for audiences in the BBC regions and now seen for the first time throughout the UK. Tonight from BBC Midlands and West
Last summer in Gloucester the Three Choirs Festival celebrated its 250th anniversary. The annual 'Musick Meeting' of the three cathedral choirs of Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester attracts the country's finest orchestras and soloists, and audiences which include visitors from all over the world.
The Festival Conductor in 1977 was John Sanders, Organist and Master of the Choristers at Gloucester Cathedral, and it is from his point of view that the film shows the week's events.

: The German Lesson

A two-part television version of the novel by SIEGFRIED LENZ
1: Siggi Jepsen is a young art thief, an inmate in a post-war juvenile detention centre in Germany. His crime is stealing paintings; but only those of an expressionist painter named Max Nansen. Why he did it is connected with the Nazi rule during the war.
Siggi's father, Jens, is the policeman of a village in Schleswig-Holstein where the Nazis have banned Max from painting, and Jens is the end of the chain of enforcement. The two men had gone to school together in the same village, and Max had once rescued Jens from drowning. But Jens has a rigid sense of duty which the author uses to symbolise the whole German dilemma, aggravated in this case by the return of his elder son, who has deserted from the German Army, after a self-inflicted wound.

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.
