: Review

Soviet Popular Culture How far has the new openness of the Gorbachev regime allowed the popular arts to flourish independent of state control?
Martin Walker of the Guardian reports from Moscow.
Fashion: SIava Tsaitsev is the Soviet Yves St Laurent and designs Raisa Gorbachev's wardrobe - but there is also a highly inventive avant-garde fashion movement.
Cars: Soviet automobiles are prized possessions, very limited in range, but amateur car clubs are busy customising the standard Ladas and Choikas to give them a distinctive identity. Theatre: The Mayakovsky
Theatre Company is bringing its production of Vassiliev's Tomorrow Was War to
Britain's National Theatre next week. It's about the youth of the 40s and their response to the War - and their hopes for the future. Plus an independent company of breakdancers,
Russian rock music and the Obshestvo Parmit
Preservation Society dedicated to conserving the Soviet Union's architectural past.

: The Natural World

Ticket to the Wild
Narrated by Barry Paine
Within the fences of Britain's railways lies the longest nature reserve in the world
- a private wildlife sanctuary where people are forbidden to tread. There, two-thirds of our native wild flowers also survive. They are an unwitting bequest of Victorian lengthmen who cared for the verges. This profusion of plants and animals is a unique legacy of 'the age of the train'.

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.
