: Designs on Europe

A series of films, each made by a different European country, profiling six very different architects who are contributing to the look of the new Europe. Germany: Volkwin Marg and Meinhard von Gerkan
The two Hamburg architects had barely qualified when they won their first competition - for Berlin's Tegel Airport. Since then their practice has designed six more airports as well as housing, shopping arcades, offices and, something of a speciality, multi-storey car parks. Their work is characterised by a strong feeling for the architecture of Hamburg. They see their greatest challenge as reconciling their duty to be
'modern' architects - masters of the materials, technologies and demands of their time - to their belief that such architecture should enhance, not distort or damage, the traditional fabric of their city. Narrated by Patrick Malahide. Director Ralph Quinke

The first part of the highly-acclaimed two-part dramatisation of one of America's most baffling and controversial criminal cases. Starring
Jason Robards , Martin Sheen Atlanta , 1979: the city's administrators and police are in a state of turmoil with crime figures rising and accusations of racial prejudice rife. To this climate a new factor is added: a series of murders, all of young black children.

Then comes a startling breakthrough.

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.
