: Music in Camera

Debussy Preludes played by Cecile Ousset.
The 24 piano preludes were almost all inspired by visual images; a Greek vase, an ancient Egyptian town or simply a countryside scene. The Burrell Collection, built among woods and fields in Glasgow's Pollock Park and housing a rich treasure store of artefacts and paintings is an appropriate setting for this recital of the 12 preludes from Book 1.

: The Great Rift

An African odyssey in three parts.
^Footprints in the Valley.
The earth's crust blisters, cracks, and splits. A valley so vast as to be visible from space is creating a variety of new African landscapes -
Plains, massive cliffs, forests and smouldering volcanoes. Each brims with its own special wealth of species - mountain gorillas, black serval cats and colobus monkeys. One animal managed to live in nearly all the new landscapes, adopting an upright posture making movement easier and leaving forelimbs free.
Man was born here in the Great Rift of Africa.

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.
