: Music in Camera

celebrates the centenary of Edith Sitwell 's birth with a new production of Facade devised and presented by Pamela Hunter with the NASH ENSEMBLE conducted by JIM PARKER
When it was first performed in 1923, this 'entertainment with poems' by Edith Sitwell and William Walton caused a small riot. Miss Sitwell hid behind a curtain until the audience had cleared the hall. Later she wrote:
'The misunderstandings that arose round these poems!
Their apparent gaiety caused them to be suspect. But we were just being ourselves ..." In her prologue to the piece, Pamela Hunter uses Edith Sitwell 's own words to conjure up the world of childhood memories and associations which were her inspiration.
And television adds a further dimension: archive film and electronic wizardry combining to create 'Facade - the Video'.

: The Natural World

Paradise Reclaimed
Narrated by Tom Conti
- A Professor who wrestles with boa constrictors, sets fire to the forest and collects horse dung.
- A jungle that turns to desert every year and is full of chewing gum and amber. Turning traditional conservation ideas upside-down, Dan Janzen , an American biologist is reconstructing a tropical, dry-forest park in Costa Rica. The bold plan is to turn a patchwork of ranches and farms with a few clumps of trees into the kind of jungle that once covered most of Central America, India and Australia.
Undaunted by the tangle of tropical natural history that baffles most naturalists, Janzen has chased the secrets of the new
Guanacaste National Park until he now has enough information to grow back tropical dry forest.

: Burt Lancaster in Elmer Gantry

with Jean Simmons
Burt Lancaster won an Oscar for his powerful performance as the con man who swaps his job as a travelling salesman for hell-fire preaching - a new position which gives him power and has the added advantage of being close to the beautiful Sharon. This adaptation of SINCLAIR LEWIS'S controversial novel retains and skilfully uses the 1920s Midwest setting.

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.
