It's Bootle-But is it Art?
Tonight Art in Action, a community photography project on Merseyside, frustrates their local council by bringing to the public eye 'mages of a deprived dockland community.
' If Art in Action were not in this house it would be smashed up like a bombed house. This house does not get wrecked because it's good, very good. This gives us more education than our school-we don't get such confidence there.'

' Tolstoy was like the whole of creation - he contained everything ... And we can't expect these truly sublime minds to conform to a pattern of logic. We can't expect to find in them the sort of consistency we might look for in a lesser mind ..."
' It quite often happens that people will say to me " I saw you on the telly on Saturday night", and I say " But I wasn't on the telly on Saturday night ", and of course it turns out to be Yarwood! And this appreciation of him being me is Much greater than their appreciation, such as it is, of me attempting to be myself....'
' Without a God, men have to be gods themselves, and fabricate their own immortality - as here, in wax, in Madame Tussaud's exhibition....'

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
