Delinquent Dogs
Jennie and Herbie Watson are dog obedience trainers. They took 13 delinquent dogs, and their owners, into a Manchester park for a long weekend.
Some of the dogs were just plain disobedient, others mental wrecks, and a few had bitten off rather more than they could chew.
They all had to be cured, or else ...

: Arena

An Andalucian Journey Gypsies and Flamenco
The flamenco of southern
Spain is more than music and much more than an exhilarating dance for the tourists. It's the soul of a culture, and its roots go back to the 15th century when gypsy travellers made their way via Asia and North Africa to Spain. Today the real flamenco is kept alive by the gypsy families of Andalucia. Through their private family rituals, baptisms, marriages and fiestas, the new generation of Andalucian gypsies learns flamenco from its elders, the great solo cantores and the most powerful and accomplished dancers of flamenco in the world. Today the families are no longer travellers - they are integrated, socially and economically, with the population. But they keep alive their traditions with pride, and in this film Arena travels to meet them and to see and hear the real flamenco.

: The Red Inn

starring
Fernandel
A monk and his novice seek shelter at an isolated mountain inn. Also trapped for the night are a company of travellers whose coach has broken down. Just as they are sitting down to dinner, the innkeeper's wife sends for the monk. Her confession that she and her husband are in the habit of murdering their guests puts the monk into a pretty quandary. Fernandel gives a delightfully over-the-top performance as the desperate monk in Claude Autrant -Lara's macabre farce.

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.
