: Pictures at an Exhibition

Concerto for Paintbrush and Orchestra
One of the great works in the orchestral repertoire is heard - and seen - as never before. Joining Simon Rattle and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra on the stage of Birmingham's Symphony Hall is performance artist Norman Perryman. In time with the score, Perryman paints images inspired by Ravel's orchestration of Musorgsky's music on to glass plates. These will appear on a screen behind the orchestra through two overhead projectors. Before the performance, Perryman explains his philosophy and techniques - and reveals the meticulous preparation that has gone into this ambitious project. Producer Jonathan Fulford
Executive producer Rod Natkiel

: The Face of Tutankhamun

Five Chronicle films that follow the quest for the richest treasure trove ever found.
3: Everywhere the Glint of Gold In the wake of the discovery ofTutankhamun's tomb,
"Tut mania" spread across Europe and America. Haifa century after the discovery, the world tours of the Treasures of Tutankhamun reintroduced these spectacular Egyptian antiquities into the visual bloodstream of the west. And that Tut magic still exerts a powerful fascination - with sometimes bizarre results.

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.

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.
