: Dance Month

I am a Dancer
A film profile of one of the world's greatest dancers
Rudolf Nureyev
From ballet class to rehearsal to final performance, the film reveals the effort and the strain behind the triumph. Nureyev is shown as pupil and teacher, as a classical and modern dancer. An informal side of him is glimpsed as he prepares in his dressing-room for his next performance.
The centrepiece of the film is the complete performance of Marguerite and Armand created by SIR FREDERICK ASHTON for Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn. The film includes extracts from La Sylphide with Carla Fracci , Field Figures with Deanne Bergsma , and the final pas de deux from Sleeping Beauty with Lynn Seymour.

: Brass Tacks

Full of Natural Goodness Presented by Eric Robson Britain's epidemic of heart disease has become the worst in the world -one man in three will die from it. And yet for years, doctors have been suggesting ways to reduce figures.
In 20 major industrial countries, including Britain, official medical committees have drawn a link between eating animal fats, and having heart attacks. Here, in Britain, the Department of Health has recommended that we eat less of these fats, but the Ministry of Agriculture doesn't appear to pay even lip-service to this advice. Our farmers are still encouraged to produce fat-laden meat, our meat processors still make pies and sausages containing 35% fat, and our dairy industry still tells us that butter is beneficial and that milk is ' full of natural goodness '.
Editor ALAN DOBSON. BBC Manchester
If you're got a point of view let's hear it. All participating BBC local radio stations will have a phone-in continuing the Brass Tacks debate (details on local radio page 68 of RADIO TIMES). Alternatively, write to Brass Tacks - Return Call, BBCtv, Oxford Road, Manchester M60 ISJ. (Return Call next Saturday will report back on what you think)

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.
