: Under Sail

The last of six programmes Brown Boats and Wherries
Two traditional Norfolk craft which have survived changed times on the Broads.
The Brown Boats are yachts. Thirty-one were built in the 1900s for local families, who raced them on Oulton Broad. Of these, 29 still exist, thanks to the devoted care of Lady Mayhew, who has sailed in Brown Boats for 80 years.
By contrast, the story of the Wherries is a tragedy. This trading vessel, most famous of the Broads boats, is almost extinct. Only one, the Albion, survives, earning her living with holiday cruises. Her large brown sail towering above the motor cruisers is a reminder of earlier, more elegant days. Narrator TOM SALMON Director JENNI BURROWS

: One Hundred Great Paintings

The first of 15 programmes
This week's subject is Children Egon Schiele (1890-1918)
Woman with Two Children at the Osterreichisches Museum, Vienna. As might be expected of an artist of a generation discovering Freud and the human unconscious, the chronic agitation and despair running through Schiele's work is derived partly from his relationship with a mother who seemed entirely lacking in either sympathy or understanding.

: Horizon

Painting by Numbers
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly between the skyscrapers of a city centre? ... to take a trip through Saturn's rings? ... or walk around inside a molecule of DNA?
' Computer graphics' provides ways of simulating reality or building fantastic new worlds - together with the power to explore or manipulate the 3-D images created.
For the artist it's a new way to paint, or to animate a film; for the scientist to understand his data or test a hypothesis; and for anyone to play ever more elaborate space-invaders style games, or to participate in and control extraordinary, dangerous or impossible events ...

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.
