: The First Eden

The Mediterranean World and Man
A series of fourprogrammes by David Attenborough
1: The Making of the GardenIt was a dramatic birth.
Six million years ago the Mediterranean was a desert. Then the Atlantic broke through at the Strait of Gibraltar filling the basin. The Mediterranean sea was born. With the water came marine life; the shores were clothed in forests; the air was filled with the sounds of birds and the scent of flowers. David Attenborough presents a spectacular portrait of the Mediterranean, from its birth to the time some 10,000 years ago when people began to settle around the eastern shores and transform this paradise garden - their first Eden.

: Theatre Night: The Miser

by MOLIÈRE
Translated by ALAN DRURY
The miser loves money above life itself. It takes the whole efforts of his children, their lovers, his unpaid servants and the accomplished courtesan Frosine to make him part with a few francs. When his gold vanishes from its hiding Place in his garden, he must surely be beaten. But in the end, who wins .. ?

: The Lost Composer

Almost 40 years after it was written,
Berthold Goldschmidt 's opera
Beatrice Cenci has at last been given its premiere.
Commissioned by the Arts
Council for the 1951 Festival of Britain, this large-scale, full-blooded work languished unperformed, and it seemed totally forgotten. Now Goldschmidt is finally enjoying some of the celebrity which has eluded him throughout 85 extraordinary years.
Tonight George Benjamin , Bernard Keeffe ,
David Matthews , Simon Rattle and others celebrate his rare talent for composing, conducting - and living.
Goldschmidt himself recalls some of the landmarks of his life and of the 20th century. The programme includes extracts of his work.

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.
