: The Natural World

Kingdom of the Thunder Dragon
Bhutan is the most remote and inaccessible of all the Himalayan countries. To the early Buddhists, it was the lotus garden of the gods, to western explorers, the Shangri-la of fable.
Sandwiched between China and India, the kingdom is determined to preserve its unique culture and wildlife; King Jigme Wangchuk has declared that the Gross
National Happiness of his subjects is more important than the GNP. This is the first film to explore the country where cutting down a tree is considered a sin.

Classicism: the Rejected Alternative
Written and presented by Quinlan Terry
The Modernist movement of the 20th century swept away Classical architecture, declaring it outmoded and dead. Today there is a revival. Quinlan Terry , the revival's leading exponent, sees the triumph of Modernism as a tragic error and argues for its overturn.
Using examples of new work, including his own spectacular development at Richmond upon Thames, he calls for a return to Classical architecture in every facet of our built environment. Film editor GUY CROSSMAN Producer ROGER LAST Executive producer CHRISTOPHER MARTIN

: The American Wave 2: Barry Levinson's Diner

New directions from the latest generation of movie makers. Tonight starring
Steven Guttenberg Mickey Rourke Ellen Barkin
Baltimore, 1959: for Eddie,
Boogie, Shrevie, Fenwick and Billy, the local diner is the world. A place to laugh and cry in. To make plans and reminisce in. And to wait for the big game on 27 December when the New York Giants meet their own Baltimore Colts. This is their golden week - as they celebrate Christmas and face up to adulthood.
Barry Levinson , the director of Good Morning Vietnam, wrote and directed this humorous, touching portrait of life in America at the end of an era, and made it one of the finest films of the 80s.

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.
