Magenta De Vine and Sankha Guha set off to uncover a different Europe - one you'll not find in most guide books.
Over the next weeks, they'll be visiting eight major cities. First stop - canals, controversy, fast food, films, squatters and football. Not forgetting rock, of course. What's it like to be young and living in Amsterdam? Where are the hip clubs, who runs pirate radio, and how are homosexuals treated? Director JOSH HALIL

: Horizon Special: The Quest for Tannu Tuva with Richard Feynman

Shortly before his death last February, the great scientist Richard Feynman told
"Horizon" the story of his ten-year fascination with Tannu Tuva, a Shangri-La on the edge of Mongolia, which very few westerners have ever seen.

From Tuva came strange and beautiful stamps. Here, 'the reindeer and the camel are neighbours', and nomads perform a weird type of harmonic throat-singing which, once heard, is never forgotten. Feynman also talks about his role in identifying the cause of the Space Shuttle disaster, and his love of deciphering Mayan hieroglyphics.

He plays the bongos, too.

: Do You Remember Love?

Continuing a season of films specially made for television.
Tonight starring
Joanne Woodward Richard Kiley
So what if
Barbara Wyatt Hollis is a little eccentric - she's an English professor and a poet! But her husband George can see beyond her academic manner to something more worrying - why does her memory keep lapsing, why is she often so confused and why does she flare into powerful hostility for no reason? And it's getting worse. Much worse. This award-winning film features a moving performance by Joanne Woodward as a woman faced with the onslaught of Alzheimer's disease, a disorder that causes mental and physical deterioration.
Written by VICKIE PATIK Produced by WAYNE THREM and JAMES THOMPSON Directed by JEFF BLECKNER

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.
