: Review Special

William Kennedy 's Albany 'I'm much against the novel that takes place in a social vacuum. It's bored me for years....'
It took the intervention of Saul Bellow for
William Kennedy to find a publisher for his novel
Ironweed, which went on to win the Pulitzer Prize and establish Kennedy as one of the most original of contemporary American writers.
Kennedy talks about his relation to the city of Albany, New York - the place that has inspired all his writing including his next novel, Quinn's Book.
This Review Special features excerpts from
Hector Babenco 's new film of Ironweed for which Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep have received Oscar nominations. Sound MARTIN CLIFT

"Three nomads, wandering the deserts of London and the provinces, and holding on by the skin of our teeth to keep the Yiddish Theatre ... alive!' Anna Tzelniker , Harry Ariel and Bernard Mendelovitch are the last three Yiddish actors in the country. With no permanent theatre of their own, they struggle to bring their unique tradition of theatre to an audience of nostalgic older people and younger people searching for their roots.

: Arena

Last Waltz in Vienna
With the impending 50th anniversary of the Anschluss - Hitler's annexation of Austria in March 1938 -
Arena offers another chance to see the film based on Georg Klaar 's widely acclaimed autobiography. On Saturday 26 February
1938,17-year-old Georg Klaar went to his first ball in Vienna. It was also his last. Two weeks later, the Germans marched into
Austria. The comfortable world of Georg and his family was utterly destroyed.
Tonight Georg Klaar , now
George Clare , tells his story in a film that traces the fortunes of three generations of Viennese Jews through a troubled period of Austrian history. It begins in Vienna in the 1860s and ends in September 1942 in a tiny village in France from which his parents were to make their last journey. It is this small village which is at the heart of George Clare 's search for his family past - a personal attempt to record the rich cultural heritage which he absorbed and to lay the ghost of a recurring nightmare.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
