: The Ascent of Man

A personal view in 13 parts by J. Bronowski
3: The Grain in the Stone
The wandering nomads cease their migrations and settle in townships, learning new skills. Here, the late Dr Bronowski discovers the origins of science in the interaction of hand and brain. Man can split a stone into pieces, but must put the piece together again to make a wall, a cathedral, a city. The programme takes architecture as the model for science, from the Inca cities in the high Andes to the Roman aqueducts in Spain, from the great cathedrals of medieval
France to modem Los Angeles, as man uncovers the laws of nature in the stone.

: Maestro

A series of four programmes Billie Jean King
It was in writing a school essay that Billie Jean first set her sights on Wimbledon as being the 'Mecca' of her tennis world; and it was as a tennis junior excluded from a team photograph for being 'unconventionally' dressed that she started her crusade to bring social change into her sport.
Billie Jean King (nee Moffitt) was not always the darling of Wimbledon Centre Court.
The British crowd in the 60s did not appreciate that fiery ambition which drove her towards 20 Wimbledon titles, though they admired her achievements.
Barry Davies talks to Billie Jean in her New York office about those achievements, and the life which was so dramatically changed when her affair with Marilyn Barnett was 'laundered' through the American courts.

: Horizon

The Blind Watchmaker based on the book by RICHARD DAWKINS
If someone looked inside your watch and told you that all the little wheels, cogs, springs and gears had simply fallen together by pure chance - you'd think they were mad!
You know a watch must have a watchmaker.
And what about the beautiful complexity of living things? Did they come together by chance too - or did they have an intelligent designer? God? So argued ancient clerics. And so too do modem creationists. They even use a bizarre shaggy dinosaur story to discredit Darwin. But Darwin has a modern champion in Dr Richard Dawkins - the Oxford zoologist. He goes dinosaur-tracking in deepest Texas and tries to convince us that evolution, The Blind
Watchmaker, really works. Film editor PETER CLARKE Written and produced by JEREMY TAYLOR

: Tchaikovsky: The Symphonies

Symphony No 4 in F minor, Op 36
Two years and the greatest emotional crisis of his life separate Tchaikovsky's fourth symphony from his third. Out of this crisis emerged a symphonic method which enabled him to fulfil his talent. Describing the music of this symphony
Tchaikovsky said, 'The main idea ... is suggestive of the idea of Fate, the inevitable power that hampers our search for happiness. One's whole life is just a perpetual traffic between the grimness of reality and one's fleeting dreams of happiness.' BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra conducted by Mariss Yansons

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.
