A monthly series of 13 films in which a walled garden is restored, and worked as it was 100 years ago. presented by Peter Thoday with Head Gardener Harry Dodson 3: February
Winter locks the garden in its icy grip. It is an opportunity for repairing tools. Peter shows the diverse range the Victorian gardener had at his disposal. Harry turns his attention to the forcing house where he plants chicory, asparagus, and rhubarb. The Victorians had a taste for the delicate flavour of forced vegetables. They were prolific in developing new methods of cultivation and in 1842 an experiment by Hertfordshire landowner
John Lawes gave the country its first purpose-made artificial fertiliser.

Wars of the Word
Throughout history, strict control of channels of information has been recognised as the key to retaining and exploiting political power. Today, the control of national television is seen by regimes the world over as a necessary adjunct to their survival.
Peter France presents two films about the control and effect of mass communications in other times.
The first tells the story of the financial control of the political press by the establishment in early 19th-century Britain, and the second the psychological power of a dramatic radio broadcast in the USA 100 years later, when the young Orson Welles petrified a nation.

: Harrison Birtwistle's Endless Parade

Harrison Birtwistle is the most original of the current crop of British composers.
His music may sound ultra-modern or primeval, unsettling and unfathomable or aggressively extrovert - but never dull. Tonight, Birtwistle himself introduces the British premiere of his trumpet concerto "Endless Parade" recorded at London's Barbican Centre. The soloist is the brilliant Swedish trumpeter HÃ¥kan Hardenberger.

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.
