: Patron of Art

Walter Hussey (1909-85) As a parish priest he commissioned a Madonna and Child from Henry Moore. As Dean of Chichester Cathedral he asked Leonard Bernstein to write what became the Chichester Psalms. Once the Church had a glorious record of working with artists to embellish the liturgy and adorn places of worship: Walter Hussey re-invigorated that tradition in this country.
Before his death he talked to composer Robert Walker about some of the remarkable men with whom he worked: Graham Sutherland, Marc Chagall, Lennox Berkeley, Benjamin Britten and how he sometimes had to fight for his belief that the life of faith could be enhanced by art.
With contributions from John Piper, Leonard Bernstein, Henry Moore and Sir Peter Pears.

: The Triumph of the West: 9: Monuments to Progress

A view of world history in 13 parts by JOHN ROBERTS
The Victorians took it for granted that the world was getting better. Progress was the idol of the day. Tennyson wrote of 'the march of mind'. The Industrial Revolution marked changes as great as the French Revolution which it followed and, as history speeded up, revolutionary ideology spread round the world. One transforming idea was that the purpose of politics was to bring about social and institutional change. With that went other unsettling Western exports - ideas like 'nationalism' and 'socialism', the great secular religions of our time.
John Roberts describes the age of industry, of the great Italian nationalist Garibaldi, and the French socialist Jean Jaures. 'Nationalism has turned the world upside-down: the most powerful revolutionary force in the world....'

: Edge of Darkness: 1: Compassionate Leave

An original screenplay in six parts by Troy Kennedy Martin
'Hi, Dad... I'll be at college 'til ten... Can you pick me up?... Love you.... Bye.' A message for Ronald Craven: widower, Yorkshire detective, a loner. One daughter, Emma: a clever girl with more to her life than her father chooses to see.
A moment's savagery on a rainswept night presents Craven with his most harrowing case - and a one-way ticket to the heart of the nuclear state.

: Open Space: A Plague on You

Where the public sets the agenda.
'I am now advocating that most newspapers should carry a Government Health Warning - I really think they are very dangerous to people's health.'

The sensational press coverage of the disease AIDS has created a climate of anxiety, alarm and even panic. In this film the Gay Media Group shows how the coverage has affected everyone, from the gay community and AIDS sufferers to the public at large. Fleet Street has repeatedly used lurid and misleading stories about the 'gay plague' to fan anti-gay prejudice. This programme explores the media myths and sets out the facts about the disease with the help of contributions from Derek Jameson, George Gale, Professor Michael Adler and Tony Whitehead

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
