: The Cantor of St Thomas's

'Too operatic,' someone said in Leipzig, 'and too long!' One opinion of Bach's music, on his appointment to his last, longest and most famous post: Cantor of the City's Thomasschule ...
This film to mark the Bach tercentenary recounts the life of one of the world's greatest composers, seen from those Leipzig years and based on the records of the City Council, his employers. It's a story of Bach's fight to defend position, status, and, above all else, his music.

: The Coppola Connection: The Conversation

continues the season of films by one of Hollywood's greatest directors starring Gene Hackman John Cazale
Harry Caul is a professional eavesdropper -
'the best bugger on the West Coast'. He is also an intensely neurotic man, obsessed by his work and his own privacy. Following a particularly difficult surveillance job in San Francisco, he believes a young couple are about to be murdered. Gradually
Caul becomes enmeshed in a mystery even more complex and dangerous than he anticipates. Gene Hackman gives a magnificent performance as a man driven to near insanity in this hallucinatory work from an original screenplay by its director.
Written, produced and directed by FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA

: Grand Prix: The 1985 Formula One World Championship: The Brazilian Grand Prix

Motor racing's winter break has produced its usual crop of stories: Toleman's on-off season, Tyrrell's reinstatement, the Renault power struggle. But today, in Brazil, it's business as usual as 15 teams start out on an eight month long season.
A world-wide television audience of nearly 78 million will join Rio de Janeiro's excitable motor racing fans as some of the winter's questions start to be answered: can McLaren maintain their 1984 dominance, will Ayrton Senna live up to his reputation now that he's joined Lotus, and how will Brabham respond to the disappointment of last year? Murray Walker and James Hunt steer you round the 3.13 mile Jacarepagua course.

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.
