: Music in Camera

During the next six months, Music in Camera will be providing a platform for 24 recitals.
In programmes linked only by the intimate nature of the performances, chamber music classics will rub shoulders with lesser-known music dating back to the beginnings of the European music tradition, and other works so recent they are still to be published. Kiri Te Kanawa and Roger Vignoles open the series with a programme of French song including operatic extracts as well as some Of CANTELOUBE'S 'Songs of the Auvergne'. In conversation with Sue MacGregor , Dame Kiri sheds light on her own approach to recital singing.

: The Lion and the Dragon

The first of two programmes
The British in China 1920-1939 It was business which took the British to China, not dreams of imperial conquest. Western business wealth created the celebrated waterfront at Shanghai. It was a modem city as some who made their lives there in the 1920s and 30s recall. For the British 'missey' there was a household of servants, for 'master' the club, and for the sailors, the many notorious 'cabarets'.

: The Natural World

Leopard - a Darkness in the Grass
Survival on the hot plains of Africa is a tightrope between life and death, even for the big cats. The leopard is a shy and elusive prowler, seldom ever seen by visitors to Kenya's most magnificent game reserve, the Masai Mara. The extraordinary and hazardous events in the daily life of one particular leopard and her cubs are revealed in an intimate portrait of an animal that has rarely been filmed before. Her wariness of elephants, a clash with a cheetah for possession of prey, and the threat from lions that could easily kill her cubs, show that even this powerful predator takes part in the continual struggle for life.

: Lovelaw

A series of eight films about the love-lives of people round the world.
1: Young Love
Teenagers in Japan, Kenya, India, and the United States speak about the rules - or lack of rules - that govern their love-lives. What is the right balance between romantic love, sex, and obedience to traditional values? From the 'girl-seeing-ceremony' of southern India to the 'last American virgins' of California, it's the young lovers themselves who explain how they manage the tension between love and law.

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.

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.
