: Tango Mio

Without the twilights and the nights of Buenos Aires, there would be no tango.
That most erotic and mysterious of dances, the tango, came to life in the suburbs and backstreets of Buenos Aires. This Arena Special traces its colourful and bizarre life story, through the work of its greatest poets, dancers and musicians. At the beginning of the century the tango was danced only in the harbour brothels, then, sophisticated in fashionable nightclubs and adopted by major poets and writers, it entered its golden age in the 30s and 40s. For the Argentines it's more than just a dance - the poet Discepolo calls it 'a feeling of sadness which can even be danced to'. Away from tourists' eyes, in their own cafes and dance halls, today's unknown 'stars' of tango tell their stories, among them the charismatic Juanita 'La Negra'. The strange and magical history of tango is told through the words of poets, rare archive film of its greatest stars of the past, and specially choreographed scenes by a modern master,
Juan Carlos Copes.

: Film International: Little Ida

Sunniva Lindekleiv Lise Fjeldstad
Occupied Norway, 1944. Seven-year-old Ida and her brother come to live with their mother who has found work in the north. Ida finds it hard to make friends among the local children who all know her mother is a collaborator: Ida doesn't even know what the word means.
Laila Mikkelsen 's sensitive observation of the minutiae of adult betrayal, seen through the naive eyes of a child, is based on a true story. As Ida, Sunniva Lindekleiv gives a truly astonishing performance which made her the darling of the critics.

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.
