: Jacqueline du Pre Masterclass

A second chance to see this memorable series, first shown in 1979, and repeated this week on consecutive evenings.
In the first of four programmes recorded at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama before an audience of music students, the cellist Jacqueline du Pre takes a masterclass on the work, which above all others, she made particularly her own: the Elgar cello concerto. With FAYE CLINTON and CHRISTINE JACKSON accompanist CLIFFORD BENSON
She was always the most physical and generous of musicians. Now she instructs meticulously, full of concern and goodwill for the young players.

: Arthur Negus Enjoys

This week Arthur Negus visits the Museum of Playthings Past at Rednal, near Birmingham, where Betty Cadbury shows him her huge collection of Victorian toys, especially the mechanical figures and animals. Bears which smoke cigarettes and drink milk, peacocks which display their tail feathers, growling lions and crowing cockerels - they all combine to make a fascinating cacophony of Victorian ingenuity and fun.

: New series Brass Tacks

The first of 12 programmes Presented by Eric Robson
On the Rocks ...
Divorce today is only marginally more difficult than getting planning permission for a kitchen extension; it can even be quicker and cheaper.
With Britain now topping the European league of failed marriages, around 200,000 children a year have their family lives disrupted. Is it now too easy to obtain divorce on demand ... and do the British have unrealistic expectations of marriage?
Producer DAVID GEEN Editor COLIN ADAMS
If after listening to the Brass Tacks debate you'd like to add your point of view, write to: Return Call, BBCtt', Oxford Road, Manchester, M60 ISJ. Return Call to Brass Tacks, next Monday at 7.45 pm, will report back on what you think. Brookes On ... page 73

: Newseries They're Playing My Tune

Four short films about music and memory
... of all the countless melodies This one stirs up memories:
It's still the best and it's my request
So play it please!
A song, or a tune, made special because of the moment with which it's associated, becomes the personal property of the listener.
In this first programme of the series George Melly recalls the song that changed his life, and the circumstances under which he heard it.

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.
