: Horizon

Careering into Science
What does the world of science look like through the eyes of the scientists of the future?
Horizon invited three boys and three girls aged 15 and 16, from widely different backgrounds, to make a three-week journey of exploration through science and technology in Britain. Given an entirely free hand, they decided to investigate everything from the most monotonous assembly line work to advanced research in lasers and particle physics. They interview engineers, nurses, deep-sea divers, botanists, biochemists and airline pilots about lifestyles, motivations and money.

Tonight from BBC South West Dear Bells
'How sweet the sound of village bells,
When on the undulating air they swim!
Now loud as welcomes!
Faint, now, as farewells! '
The art of bell ringing is not peculiar to the West Country, but perfection in round ringing is something in which the Cornish particularly excel.
Tonight's film recaptures the keenness and dedication underlying the tradition.

: Voices of Children

Profile of a Dancer
Christopher Bruce - winner of the first Evening Standard dance award, one of the great English modern dancers, and probably the best English choreographer of his generation. Now Associate Director of the Ballet Rambert, at just over 30 years old, he's creator of almost 15 ballets....
This film, first shown in January, shows him as dancer and choreographer: on tour with the company in North Wales, at work in their London studios, at home with his wife and family - three children, one of them adopted.
For Bruce is a family man: his ballets are to do with the day-today relationships of people-he ' wants to be a person on stage, to make ballets for people, not princes in fairy stories ' : so throughout the film runs a complete performance of one of his best-loved works, Ancient Voices of Children - based on the games and loves and quarrels of children. Also in the programme: excerpts from Pierrot Lunaire, the role that made him famous, and Bruce's own ballets, For These who Die as Cattle, Black Angels, Girl with Straw Hat , Cruel Garden, a brilliant full-length work on the poet Lorca.

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.
