The last of ten programmes This week's theme: Gardens Klee (1879-1940)
Garden with Birds
(Galerie Stangl , Munich)
The strong resemblance between Klee's watercolour and children's art is not just an affectation. He preserved his childhood drawings very carefully and always believed j that if it was ever to probe beneath the surface of appearances, modern art had to look again at its primitive origins.

: Romer's Egypt

Diary of a Search
' If I was in life for fame and fortune I'd be in the movies or as Whistler said, jump off Waterloo Bridge with fireworks in my pockets. There's more ways of making a big flash deal of yourself than digging bloody holes in the desert, believe me.'
John Romer , a self-confessed ' loony ' under the spell of Egypt's mysterious past, was filmed for two years as his ill-assorted team searched for the treasure of ancient kings and possible glory. But in the heat of the desert passions flare and in this intimate portrait all is revealed about the pressures of expedition life; about an offbeat man; about Romer's Egypt. Narrated by joss ACKLAND
Written and produced by PAUL WATSON

: Poland on Release

Workers 80
A year ago the historic agreement between Solidarity and the Polish government was signed, bringing far-reaching changes unique in the Communist world.

Tonight, a special showing of Workers 80. This moving documentary was shot behind the locked gates of the Gdansk shipyards last August. It provides a unique record of the dramatic negotiations between Lech Walesa and government officials, which led to the launching of Solidarity. Officially the film does nnt exist. Unofficially millions of Poles have seen it in clubs and cinemas ' occupied ' for the day.

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.
