: Year of the French

A documentary series giving an insight, month by month, into the lives of individual French men and women. November:
The Enterprising Bourgeois
Armistice Day in Lille, the industrial heart of north-east France. Luc Doublet is at the ceremony, torn between feelings of sadness at the memory of those who died and pride in the fact that his flags are draped all over the city. Doublet runs a small family firm which makes flags and products from steel tubing. In a region where factories are closing and unemployment is high, his business is booming.
Luc Doublet is a lively, self-confident and entertaining man. His appearance, wife and house conform to his idea of the perfect French lifestyle. He has a strong sense of family and an equally strong interest in food. On Armistice Day he makes a chocolate cake for the family lunch, as his 93-year-old grandfather remembers the 1914-18 war and the joy he felt when the Armistice was signed.

: Arena: Anthony Powell - An Invitation to the Dance

Anthony Powell's 12-volume epic, A Dance to the Music of Time, is widely regarded as the most formidable single work of British fiction since the war. It is also largely entertaining: its cast of 400 characters ranges from upper-class drawing-rooms to Bohemian London, and a violent death in a hippie commune. They have, in their turn, gathered a devoted set of fans among English-speaking readers.
Tonight's portrait of Powell includes tributes from such admirers as Clive James, Kingsley Amis, Alison Lurie, Robert Conquest and Hilary Spurling.
Most of all, Powell himself talks about his work, which is illustrated by James Fox, as the narrator, and with drawings by Marc.

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.
