: * Treasures of the Hermitage

The Raphael Loggia
Narrated by Marius Goring
One of the glories of Leningrad s Hermitage Museum is, in fact, a fake. Catherine the Great had a passion for the classical art of Europe. When in Rome, she fell in love with Raphael's designs for a magnificent gallery. She had to have just such a gallery herself.

: City

The last of six programmes A Town Like New Orleans?
' About nine years ago, a friend of mine said to me, "Leeds is going to expand musically, it s going to be like New Orleans And I thought.... this guy is off his nut.'
(JACK BENNETT of the All Stars)
At the last estimate there were something like 200 small groups playing live music in the Leeds area alone. Most have other jobs, some are unemployed. Some hope that one day they will make it and make a living by playing, others simply play for the hell of it.
Tonight's film looks at just a small cross-section of the grass roots of music in the city, hears a little of the hows and the whys, and a lot of the music. Whatever your tastes, from punk to jazz, folk to electronic, you should hear enough to convince you that Leeds is in fact a town like any other town. A town like New Orleans?

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.
