For 13 years, from 1969 to 1982, Gibraltar's only land border with Europe was closed off by Spain.
Francis Gomila, a community artist from Peterborough who grew up in Gibraltar during the siege, revisits the Rock to discover what effect isolation had on the 28,000 inhabitants and how they see their future. How will the Gibraltarians be affected by Spain joining the common market? Does Britain want Gibraltar any more?

: Do They Mean Us?

Our sense of humour baffles them, our politics bother them, our preoccupation with tradition bemuses them.
Apparently, we don't wash, and we are morose and miserable even on holiday. On the other hand, we are polite and kind to animals, and we would be great in a crisis -if we knew one when we saw one.
Each week Derek Jameson looks at the way foreign television reports this country. Tonight he discovers what makes British food feared throughout the world, and why many Europeans regard us with a curious mixture of distrust and admiration Research MARK ROGERS

: Life of an Orchestra

The last of the four documentaries on the London Symphony Orchestra is different from the other three, being a report on its recent political and financial fortunes. With commentary by composer Michael Berkeley , who has first-hand experience of working with orchestras, it shows the inner works of this controversial orchestra. It deals with the move to the new Barbican Concert Hall, the fight for audiences and the desperate search for sponsors. There is outspoken comment from the orchestra, including leader Mike Davis and clarinettist Jack Brymer on their plight and some of the music they are obliged to play. Andre Previn , the London Symphony Orchestra's principal director for 11 years, talks about his old orchestra and the position of the British orchestral musician.
Claudio Abbado , their present music director rehearses
Mahler, Mike Batt rehearses Caravans, James Galway makes a brief appearance. The orchestra plays on, their repertoire unpredictable, their future uncertain, but their spirits seemingly intact.

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.
