: The Money Programme

As economic union looms for the two Germanies, Nisha Pillai reports on the impact that instant capitalism will have on the east. East Germans voted for union because of the promise of the lifestyles of Europe's most successful capitalists, but their first experience of capitalism will be a very chill competitive wind. The scale of closures and unemployment now being contemplated in the east makes
Britain's industrial shake-out in the early 80s seem minor in comparison. How will the Germans cope?

: The Natural World

Emas - High Plains of Brazil
Where else in the world does a rodent grow as big as a pig, a snake as long as your living room and an anteater have a tongue the length of your arm?
Emas National Park provides sanctuary to these and other rare and bizarre creatures of the cerrados - Brazil's grasslands.
This portrait of the park unravels some of its mysteries: why ferocious ants tolerate thieving intruders; why termite mounds glow eerily at night; and why anteaters wander incessantly over the plains. Narrated by Barry Paine. Producer Richard Matthews (R)

: Soviet Music

The last of four films about living music in the Soviet Union.
Giving Voice. 'Pure music should be pure music but we bear the stigma of the past.' That is how one young Russian composer explains the nature of the artist's task in a changing country. Giving voice - bearing witness - has always been a powerful element in Russian culture and it remains so today.
In this film composers describe the special and different qualities of contemporary music in their country - its symbolism and its profoundly religious nature.
With Alfred Schnittke ,
Edison Denisov , Dmitri Smirnov , Elena Firsova , Leonid Grabovsky and many others.

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.
