: Italian Regional Cookery

First of six programmes.
Tuscany and Lazio. Valentina Harris goes in search of dishes that bring back memories of her childhood in Tuscany and Rome. A little-known backwater of Rome yields an extraordinary style of cooking. The Lazio region provides the food - potato gnocchi with a luscious tomato sauce and chicken with rosemary and garlic - and the Delle Frate family provides the company for one of those idyllic outdoor Italian meals, bathed in soft evening light.

: Under the Sun

NEW A series exploring traditions and cultures in far-flung parts of the world. Eunuchs - India's Third
Gender. Kiran was castrated four months ago. His best friend Harish yearns to be a woman but has a wife and two children. Shardabai is the Empress of the Eunuchs. She preserves the courtly traditions of the eunuchs who once guarded the Maharaja's hareems. But today most eunuchs end up in the brothels of Bombay. Eunuchs are both man and woman in one body and granted the power to bless and curse. They have all survived the trauma of gender identity. This film shows how the 'third gender' still has an accepted place in India today. Director Michael Yorke
Series editor Chris Curling

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.
