: Arthur Negus Enjoys

The first of 15 programmes in which Arthur Negus visits houses that he especially enjoys with a companion who shares his affection for the treasures they contain. He begins at Littlecote, a Tudor manor house where the bold, sombre 16th-century great hall contrasts strongly with the colourful and delicate drawing-room created in the early 19th century. Arthur's companion is Henry Sandon , an enthusiast for pottery and porcelain, particularly Worcester.

: The Wednesday Western: Red River

John Wayne
Montgomery Clift One of the great
Westerns, Red River tells the story of Thomas Dunson, a strong-willed and hot-tempered pioneer, and his decision to embark on an unprecedented cattle drive from Texas to Abilene,
Kansas. Dunson's single-minded and ruthless obsession brings him into conflict with his adopted son, Matthew Garth, sole survivor of an Indian massacre many years before. John Wayne stars in one of his toughest roles as the determined Dunson,
Montgomery Clift as the rebellious foster son, in a tale of drama and action across the great plains of America.

: The World About Us

A special report Sacred Rights
Aborigines are black Australians who go walkabout in the outback, throw boomerangs, live on witchetty grubs and kangaroo meat. White Australians live on the beach, have an Opera House and lots of sheep ...
Breaking down these wildly inaccurate cliches can be both difficult and disturbing. This programme looks at modern Australia through the eyes of two aborigines: schoolteacher Mick MiUer and anthropologist
Marcia Langdon. Together they tell a bitter story of racism and of the battle not only to regain the rights to their ancestral homeland but also to preserve the sacred sites in the country in which their ancestors had lived for 60,000 years before the first white men set foot there - and fired the first shot.

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.
