: Protest and Survive

An Open Door programme made by Schools Against the Bomb
Does ' the Bomb' mean the end of the world, or do we believe what the Government tells us-that it's there to ensure our safety? The group of young people making tonight's programme, the first in a new series of Open Door, don't believe a word of it, Mrs Thatcher. They explain why they believe Britain should disarm as a first step towards world peace - as well as lessening its chances of being used for Russian target practice.

: Cruel Garden

Conceived by LINDSAY KEMP Choreographed by CHRISTOPHER BRUCE
Music by CARLOS MIRANDA
Cruel Garden is one of the most exciting shows ever presented by Ballet Rambert . It's a spectacle full of gripping imagery: death in the bullring, a pool of blood under the blue light of the moon.
Inspired by the life and works of the great Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca , it's the story of a man apart: poet, bullfighter, maybe even Christ figure, who is forced to meet destruction at the hands of the powerful and the evil of this world.

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.
