: Summer Festivals

Paul Gambacclni and Fran Morrison visit the historic city of Chichester to capture the essence of the festivities going on throughout this week and next.
The Chichester Festivities started as a celebration of the 900th Anniversary of the Cathedral in 1975 and have continued to flourish ever since. The Cathedral itself is used extensively throughout the Festival and the young pianist Bernard d'Ascoli performs in this classic setting.
Music of a different kind is supplied by folk violinist David Swar brick and guitarist Simon Nichol , and the early music Consort of Twelve play a work by the Dutch composer hallendaal.
The Chichester Festival Theatre presents Cavell, a new play by KEITH BAXTER , and the programme includes an extract with Joan Plowright in the title role.
These artists, and many more, give a flavour of the excitement and talent to be found at the Chichester Festivities this year.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
