: Living on the Land

Rosemary
Her parents were always keen traders, ready to sell anything on the farm from the horses to the furniture, and Rosemary Watson decided early that she was going to be a cattle dealer. She finds it a lonely job. Farmers are chary, other dealers ' more like sparring partners than friends'. It is, she says, very much a man's job in a man's world.'

: Charlie Chan at the Olympics

starring Warner Oland with Keye Luke
'Things like thees cannot happen in Berlin!' says a very Germanic and extremely uninformed policeman during Charlie Chan's latest caper - a chase after spies who have stolen a remote-control aircraft-guiding device. It begins in Honolulu and ends at the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin where Number One son is, inscrutably, a member of the US swimming team....

: Master Photographers

This is the second in a series of six conversations with some of the grand old master photographers of this century. Bill Brandt
Bill Brandt is regarded as one of the great photographers of this century - photographer's photographer who has only recently caught the attention of a larger public. Lawrence Durrell has written that 'Brandt uses the camera as an extension of the eye -the eye of a poet*. Yet this gentle and courteous man shakes off all accolades. He has said and written almost nothing about his own work and his refusal to be drawn into any conversation about his photography is legendary. This is the first time that he has agreed to be filmed, and, talking to Peter Adam , he shows some of his favourite photographs - among them some of the pictures he took of Paris in the 20s, the compassionate photographs he took in Britain during the Depression and the Second World War, his nudes and the many portraits of famous people. Reserved and disarmingly modest, he allows a rare insight into the personality of the artist who took them.

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.
