: Sounds Magnificent

The Story of the Symphony Andre Previn with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra leader BARRY GRIFFITHS In this final programme
Andre Previn looks at the way many 20th-century composers, each from a different standpoint, have persistently turned to large-scale symphonic writing, although working at a time when the very vocabulary of music has continually outstripped its audience.
To Shostakovich (whose
Fifth Symphony concludes this series) there was the added threat that his music incurred Stalin's official displeasure when terror raged across Russia and 'difficult' composers disappeared overnight.
Shostakovich was certain he would be arrested. He always kept a small suitcase packed and ready.
But Stalin was too clever to eliminate Shostakovich; like many dictators Stalin appreciated the propaganda potential of art. Yet, when this Fifth Symphony of Shostakovich eventually appeared, it was the composer, not the politician, who ultimately triumphed. Vision mixer ANGELA WILSON

: The Italian Film: Those Eyes, That Mouth

(Gli occhi, la bocca) starring
Fading film star Giovanni returns home for his brother's funeral and is promptly drawn into a tangle of deceit and love as he tries to reconcile conflicting loyalties.
Marco Bellocchio caused a furore in Italy with his first film Fists in the Pocket, which was seen as a scurrilous if stylish attack on family life. Its star, Lou Castel , is reunited with Bellocchio in Those Eyes, That Mouth, an ironic, partly autobiographical, reappraisal of the constricting ties of the family and of the past.

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.
