: Front Line

On 9 September news cameraman Neil Davis was killed filming the attempted coup in Thailand. This programme, taken from a longer film by David Bradbury and shown as a tribute to Davis's skill and courage, includes the close-range film he shot in Vietnam that made him a legend among newsmen and brought the horrors of war home - literally - to millions of people. Davis talks about working under fire and his belief that 'it's the cameraman's job to bring the truth to the people. No matter what happens.'

: Bernstein on Mahler

The Little Drummer Boy
The first of two programmes oy Leonard Bernstein to celebrate the birth 125 years ago of the composer Gustav Mahler and which coincide with the festival currently running in London, 'Mahler,
Vienna and the 20th Century'. Tonight's musical essay is a provocative examination of the roots of Mahler's inspiration. It highlights two distinct but interrelated themes: the influence of Mahler's Jewish birth and the inspiration he drew, for both songs and symphonies, from the vivid collection of German folk poetry entitled Das Knaben Wunderhom
(The Youth's Magic Horn). Musical examples are from the nine Mahler Symphonies, The Song of the Earth and the Wunderhorn cycle.

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.
