: Open Space: Homeland

The last of four films with people who live in Britain but have roots abroad. Ciao Charlie Rossi
For Charlie Rossi life has gone full circle. Although his father Giovanni was one of the first of 15,000 Italians to settle in South Wales and Charlie was born in Ebbw
Vale, he can never forget the Italian village of Bardi where they originally came from.
Charlie married his childhood sweetheart Iolanda in Bardi and now their daughter Maria lives there with her husband Aldo and Charlie's grandson Giovanni. In summer the accent of the Welsh valleys takes over from the local dialect when Charlie and the Italian-Welsh return to their other home. As Iolanda says: 'My family laugh at me - I cry when I leave Bardi, and I cry when I come back to Ebbw Vale.'

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.
