: The Nature of Australia

A portrait of an island continent in six episodes. 4: The Sunburnt Country
Imagine a land where rain might only fall once in 25 years. Over three quarters of Australia is like that, baked by the sun, scorched by the winds and red as brick. But in the deserts, artesian water is tapped by some plants to sustain life at a low ebb. Every now and again, these arid lands receive a welcome drenching.

: The Borodin Quartet Play Tchalkovsky

Mikhail Kopelman (violin)
Andrei Abramenkov (violin) Dmitri Shebalin (viola)
Valentin Berlinski (cello). Otherwise prolific as a composer, Tchaikovsky wrote remarkably little chamber music. His first string quartet in D major contains the delightful
Andante cantabile based on a Russian folk melody. This performance of the work by the world-famous Soviet ensemble was specially recorded at Henry Wood Hall in London.

: The Final Solution - the Wannsee Conference

starring Dietrich Mattausch as Heydrich and Gerd Böckmann as Eichmann
On 20 January 1942 a high-level meeting was convened by Reinhard Heydrich. It took 14 representatives of the Nazi Party, the SS and government departments less than 90 minutes to agree the one item on the agenda: the extermination of the Jews. This prize-winning dramatisation, made for German television, sets out in chilling detail the events of the fateful Wannsee Conference. The dialogue is based on the notes from that meeting and on documentary evidence derived from the Nuremberg trials and Eichmann's own testimony.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
