: The Triumph of the West

A view of world history in 13 parts by John Roberts. 11: The East Is Red
For centuries, China thought of itself as 'the Middle
Kingdom,' the centre of the world. But in the end she had to give way to the West. From the coming of the Portuguese, to the Opium
Wars and the Siege of Peking, China has been assaulted by Western forces and ideas, not least those of Marxism. The adoption of Communism was, says John Roberts , an event in world history to match the Reformation or the rise of Islam.

: Rhythms of the World

Maytime on the Mosquito Coast
Depite the deprivations of war, the people of Bluefields, Nicaragua, still find time to do the Lambeth Walk and maypole dancing. Bluefields, on Nicaragua's east coast, is named after a notorious 17th-century pirate and its stormy past has provided it with a culture which is an anomalous amalgam of Spanish, British American, Amerindian and African. Rhythms of the World explores this fascinating corner of the Caribbean and looks at the extraordinary range of popular music to be found there.

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.
