: The World About Us

The Hidden Land
There is a hidden Spain to explore if you take to the tracks which wind back from the crowded beaches of the Costa del Sol to the foothills and mountains beyond.
Fish-eating snakes, colourful lizards, honey buzzards and bee-eaters, and the huge and magnificent griffon vulture are there to be found by the naturalist holiday-maker. For those of us who normally head for the beaches and never venture beyond the great coastal barrier of hotels, an alternative, wild Spain is revealed. Narrator KEITH BARRON

: Dame Marie Rambert

(1 1888-1982)
In 1914, Marie Rambert arrived in London from Paris where she had been working with the Diaghilev Ballet. In 1926, the BALLET RAMBERT was born on the tiny stage of the Mercury Theatre.
Out of that Company, over the next 56 years, flowed an apparently inexhaustible stream of talent to enrich ballet companies, not only in Britain, but all over the world.
In this film, made to celebrate the Company's 50th Anniversary in 1976, dame marie introduced past and present members of the Ballet Rambert. The BBC is proud to show it again in tribute to a great creative artist.

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.
