: Adventure

Yukon Passage
' Klondike or bust' was the slogan of 1897 - luring 100,000 stampeders through the treacherous wildernesses of Canada in search of gold. Four modern-day Canadians decided to follow in their footsteps - over the notorious Chilcott Pass to Lake Bennett to winter in the Arctic snows.
With spring they completed their year's trip, across the ice to Marshall, by dog sledge. Theirs was a journey of a lifetime through some of the most treacherous and beautiful wildernesses in the world.

: Seven Artists

Second in a series of seven films on contemporary artists.
Antoni Tapies ...
The assemblance of crumbling decay; the use of natural textures, the incorporation of mundane objects - provide a surprising new vision of the everyday world. But more than this, the spirit of Tapies' painting is the fiercely individual spirit of Catalonia. The music and dance of the Sardana exemplify it; the four crimson stripes of the flag symbolise it, Franco tried to suppress it.
Antoni Tapies was born and works in Barcelona. The old walls of that city have long been a particular inspiration to him. Symbolically, they represent the separation ot one world from another-what is known from what is unknown. Historically, the walls have always Provided a medium for political communication and physically are the natural fabric within which the people live.

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.
