Don Cupitt follows the stories Of SCHOPENHAUER (the first Western philosopher to feel the impact of Hinduism),
ANNIE BESANT (a remarkable Englishwoman who campaigned for a secular society and then became a theosophist) and VIVEKANANDA (the first Hindu missionary to the West).

: Saturday Review

The last in the current series of the arts and media magazine presented by Russell Davies , including: Film: No Surrender is
Alan Bleasedale 's feature film-writing debut, MICHAEL ANGELIS - who played
Chrissie in Boys from the Blackstuff - stars with BERNARD HILL, ELVIS COSTELLO and JOANNE WHALLEY in this surreal black comedy of orange and green rivalries, set in Liverpool's clubland. Print: Patricia Highsmith 's new thriller Found in the Street is set in New York's
Greenwich Village where she spent her youth. Unusually for Highsmith, the victim rather than the killer is at the heart of this novel.
Theatre: a new Stratford stage for the RSC - the Swan Theatre rises from the ashes of the original Shakespeare
Memorial Theatre which was burnt out in 1926. Artistic
Director Trevor Nunn explains how the company hopes to make a popular success of the works of Shakespeare's contemporaries.

: Jazz 625: Clark Terry and Bob Brookmeyer

Clark Terry (trumpet and flugelhorn) made his name with the Count Basie and Duke Ellington orchestras, and Bob Brookmeyer (valve trombone) with the Gerry Mulligan Quartet.
Both players command their instruments with a dazzling technique, and in 'Things ain't what they used to be', Clark Terry delights the audience with his famous mumbled vocal interpretation.
The programme was recorded in 1964 for BBC2's Jazz 625. Accompanying Clark Terry and Bob Brookmeyer are LAURIE HOLLOWAY (piano) RICK LAIRD (bass)
ALLAN GANLEY (drums) Introduced by Humphrey Lyttelton Produced and directed by TERRY HENEBERY (R)

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.

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.
