Brittany and Cornwall have many things in common. Their cultures have been intertwined for thousands of years. Alas, the Cornish appetite for fish has not developed in the same way as the Bretons. They, it seems, enjoy everything scooped out of the sea that divides these two ancient kingdoms.

: Brazil, Brazil

The first of four films reporting on the people, problems and potential of the world's fifth-largest country. God, Football and Carnival Brazil's huge disparities of wealth should mean that there's a revolution once a week, but in practice this just hasn't happened. One reason could be the important role that religion, football and carnival play in Brazilian society.

The last of two programmes about Soviet television and Soviet society Fiction
What makes Russians laugh? Who are the top pop stars on Soviet TV? What's the nearest thing to a Soviet soap opera? This programme looks at Soviet TV's way of entertainment. Poetry at peak time and opera all hours are what you might expect of a TV system which has no need to compete for ratings yet still achieves 150 million viewers for a single play. But there are also spy-thrillers and satire, and popular drama from a Soviet
Mary Poppins to Pushkin's version of Mozart and Salieri. Prize-winning screen writer Yosif Olshansky and Pravda TV critic Georgi Kapralov discuss the problems of writing for television in the USSR, and this and other issues are taken up in the studio by Melvyn Bragg , editor of The South Bank
Show, and writers Alan Plater and Alistair Beaton.

: 40 Minutes

A series of films about the way we live now.
Keep Taking the Rose Petals Treatments made from gemstones, flowers, herbs and honey; medications prepared by moonlight; potions ground by hand ... for thousands of years the healers of India and Pakistan have plied their ancient remedies. Today Asian medicine has taken root in Britain, practised by traditional healers, the Hakims and Vaids. As many as 300 now operate here, offering an alternative health service in every British town with a sizeable Asian population. The appeal of the medicines is not confined to Asians. More and more white patients, dissatisfied with modern medicine, are turning to the treatment of the East.
But traditional medicine is largely unregulated - could some of the remedies be dangerous?

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
