: Six English Towns

A Pattern of Building Written and presented by Alec Clifton-Taylor 6: Ludlow, Shropshire
' Local stone ... bricks baked from the local clays, oaks from the forests ... wherever local materials were used they look right.'
Ludlow, in the centre of the Welsh Marches, is probably ALEC CLIFTON-TAYLOR'S favourite small town. It exemplifies precisely his concept of a pattern of building - stone for the church, the bridges and the castle; wood for the medieval houses, often carved with great exuberance as at the Feathers Hotel; plaster for the ceilings, and brick for the handsome houses of the Georgian town. But there are some Victorian shockers in ' polychrome machine-made bricks in jazzy patterns' and the Market Hall, apostrophised by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner as ' Ludlow's bad luck.'

: Fortissimo Jones

A nortrait of Daniel Jones , composer
Introduced by Bernard Keeffe
4 I know of no one with quite the same irresistible sense of fun,' says BERNARD KEEFFE of the man who started composing when he was four, who didn't go to school until he was 11 and who taught Dylan Thomas the mischief of writing words backwards.
Tonight DANIEL JONES recalls, in vivid and hilarious detail, his friendship with the poet; and reads and shows manuscripts they wrote together more than 60 years ago.
Nine symphonies and a lifetime of achievement later, one of the most remarkable Welshmen of his time talks to a musician he first met when they decoded Japanese for military intelligence during the war.

: Horizon

Bags of Life
The cells of which our bodies are made are bounded by invisible membranes that are astonishingly tough, durable and electrically insulating. They're made of chemicals related to soap, and have extraordinary properties: just add water and stir - and they instantly turn into the double-layered bags upon which all life on earth depends, and which has made our evolution possible.
This is a detective story of the discovery of the mechanisms that allow these strong barriers to pass salts, nutrients and electrical messages quickly but selectively. And now artificial bags are being developed that may target antibiotics and other materials to exactly where they are needed to control or conquer many of today's most ' difficult ' diseases.

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.
