: Saturday Review

Presented by Russell Davies Exhibition: the Quai d'Orsay, a converted railway station in Paris, has now been opened as Europe's most thorough permanent museum of 19th-century art and culture. Eric Griffiths reviews the museum and asks whether such a mixture of cultural, scientific and sociological material really provides any new insights into the past. Dance: Wayne Eagling has produced a new version of Beauty and the Beast for the Royal Ballet, with music by Vangelis and designs by book-illustrator Jan Pienkovski.
Art: the dividing line between commercial and high art has always been a difficult one;
Peter Blake looks back on his art for advertisements and promotions, and asks whether we are not too narrow-minded in our prejudice towards non-inspirational art.

: West Coast Story

The second of three programmes featuring the music of California
Two Pioneers
Two of California's leading composers introduce and take part in new performances of their music.
Terry Riley 's In C and Morton Subotnik 's
The Key to Songs
San Francisco in the 1960s was a place of extraordinary cultural ferment. For young composers, the Mecca of new music was the Tape Music Center, and there in 1964 In C was first performed. With its hypnotic repeated patterns of sound and simple haunting melodies, In C was a key work in the birth of the influential musical movement known as 'Minimalism'.
Twenty years later,
The Key to Songs is the latest work of Morton Subotnik , America's leading pioneer of electronic music and, like Terry Riley , a graduate of the Tape Music Center. It combines the amplified sounds of pianos, strings and mallet instruments with the synthesised notes of a computer to create music of dazzling virtuosity.

: The Film Club L'amour a mort

starring Sabine Azema Fanny Ardant Pierre Arditi
Andre Dussollier
When her lover, Simon, is pronounced dead by a doctor, Elisabeth feels her own life is over. Yet only minutes later Simon walks downstairs, apparently none the worse. For Elisabeth their love and life together are a miracle, but Simon becomes obsessed with his experience of death. Resnais's passionate study of the power of love in the face of death is counterpointed by HANS-WERNER HENZE 'S elegiac music.
Derek Malcolm introduces two haunting films by Alain Resnais.

: Last Year in Marienbad

Screenplay by JEAN GRUAULT Produced by GERARD LEBOVICI Directed by ALAIN RESNAIS
(A French film with English subtitles. First showing on British television) and at
(L'annge dernière à
Marienbad) starring
Delphine Seyrig
Giorgio Albertazzi
In a vast baroque hotel
7 a man and a woman meet. The man claims they met last year in Frederiksbad, or maybe Marienbad. She was, he says, on the verge of leaving her husband. She denies it, but gradually the three of them become involved in an inexorable ritual played out against the timeless formal gardens and salons of a fashionable spa. Hailed by some critics as a masterpiece and denounced by others as an elaborate hoax, Resnais's elliptical version of the eternal triangle must be one of the most controversial films ever made.

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.
