: World Ski-ing Championships

from Crans-Montana The Women's Slalom
DAVID VINE introduces the final women's event of these championships and the question remains 'who can beat ERIKA HESS ?' Defending her 1982 title two years ago, she missed a gate on the second run and so missed out on the medals too. In the 19 World Cup slalom races since then, the Swiss star has scored points in all but one, a record unmatched by even her closest rivals.

: The Love of Three Orchestras

An autobiographical essay by Leonard Bernstein with Israel Philharmonic
Orchestra
New York Philharmonic Orchestra
Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra
Bernstein has conducted most of the world's great orchestras, but three have proved particularly close to his heart - the Vienna
Philharmonic for the past 20 years, the Israel
Philharmonic for exactly 40 years and the New York
Philharmonic for even longer: he made his debut back in 1943, taking over when Bruno Walter was taken ill. The story of his unexpected catapult to make front-page news in the New York Times is one of the entertaining anecdotes related by Bernstein in these vivid orchestral reminiscences, illustrated by performances of music by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms,
Tchaikovsky, Mahler,
Gershwin and Bernstein himself. Narrated by Humphrey Burton

: Saturday Review

Presented by Russell Davies Magazines: The New Yorker, which holds a unique position in American cultural life, has employed only two editors since its founding in 1925 - until a few weeks ago, when publisher Robert Gottlieb was named successor to William Shawn , an appointment which has angered many of its contributors. Former staff member and novelist
Jay McInerny reports on the tradition of the New Yorker, and why the threat of change is causing concern, with comment from writers John Updike and Ved Mehta , critics Brendan Gill and Pauline Kael , and cartoonist Karen. Film: Raymond Briggs 's apocalyptic cartoon When the Wind Blows has now been made into a full-length animation, with the voices of Dame Peggy Ashcroft and Sir John Mills.

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.
