: Charlie Chan in Egypt

continues a season of classic murder mysteries starring
Warner Oland as one of the screen's most enduring detectives.
' Theory, like mist on eyeglasses, obscures facts.'
Nevertheless, Chan gropes his way firmly through this latest vintage stew of missing Egyptian artefacts, tombs of long-dead high priests and a plethora of strange supporting characters, occidental and oriental, adding their clouds of fog to the plot ...

: Master Photographers

This is the third in a series of six conversations with some of the grand old master photographers of this century.
Andreas Feininger
Andreas Feininger 's contribution to experimental photography has been a source of inspiration to photographers all over the world. He was one of the first to use telescopic lenses, creating stunning images of New York. In recent years he has concentrated on extreme close-up photography, revealing the beauty and function of nature.
At his home in America, he talks to Peter Adam about the possibilities of creative photography and about his unshakeable belief that the camera can enrich people's way of seeing.

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.
