: Solti on Solti

Chapters for an Autobiography 2: 1932-1952
A series of three conversations in which Sir Georg Solti talks with his wife and friends.
Sir Georg takes up the story with the difficulties of launching his career in pre-war Budapest. He goes on to recall how his guardian angel guided him to Salzburg and Toseanini, on to Switzerland, where he spent the war years in uneasy isolation, and finally, in 1946, to the Munich Opera and his first conducting post. A highlight of the Munich years was his meeting with Richard Strauss.

: Film of the Week: That Sinking Feeling

This feature debut by Bill Forsyth, the Scottish director who achieved phenomenal success with Gregory's Girl earlier this year, is, like his new film, a refreshing and jaunty comedy. Set - somewhat unpromisingly - among the young, unemployed in Glasgow it concerns a group of youngsters who decide that earning an honest living is impossible. The answer, without a job or a union card, is to turn to crime. Their exploits are chaotically funny as they decide to steal a collection of 93 stainless steel sinks ... The result of their mission impossible is an optimistic tribute to the resilience of the human spirit.
Written, produced and directed by Bill Forsyth

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.
