The feature film starring
Audrey Hepburn with Peter Finch
Edith Evans , Peggy Ashcroft
A young Belgian girl, Gabrielle, enters a convent and is given the name Sister Luke. She finds her period of training increasingly difficult, for her intelligence and independent spirit make the principle of unquestioning obedience particularly hard to observe.
This moving film version of Kathryn C. Hulme 's best-seller gave Audrey Hepburn one of the finest roles of her career: her performance earned her an Academy Award nomination.

: Verdi and the Voice

starring
Peter Glossop
Narrated and conducted by Bernard Keeffe
Opera Month continues with this informal workshop-style programme which tells the story of Giuseppe Verdi 's superb mastery of vocal expression, of how his soaring melodies perfectly match the quality of the human voice.
As well as examining soprano and tenor roles, BERNARD KEEFFE concentrates in particular on Verdi's writing for baritone. Previously little used, Verdi was one of the first to realise the true musical and dramatic potential of the middle-range male voice, a quality he fully exploited in such powerful roles as Rigoletto, lago and Falstaff.
The programme also includes the famous finale to Act 2 of Ballo in Maschera (a grisly midnight setting on Gallows Hill) where soprano, tenor and baritone join in one of the most masterful operatic scenes ever written, with Milia Andrew (soprano) Henry Howell (tenor) and the ROYAL PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA leader BARRY GRIFFITHS

: Penny Whistles of Robert Louis Stevenson

A Musical Evening with and ' Penny Whistles' was an early title for R.L.S.'s children's poems eventually published as A Child's Garden of Verses. ' These are rhymes, jingles; I would just as soon call 'em " rhymes for children " as anything else.'
In the Stevensons' Edinburgh home Louis sings musical settings of the 'jingles' and reminisces with his father Thomas about his childhood. Thomas tells his guests stories of lighthouses he has built and the eccentrics they met, some of whom later appeared in Louis' novels.

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.
