: That Was the Week That Was

Nothing like it had ever been seen on television. It was topical, satirical, open-ended and above all irreverent, at a time when establishment figures expected respect from mere broadcasters. TW3 conferred instant stardom on its host David Frost and the rest of its then youthful cast. In tonight's compilation, Bernard Levin delivers his own brand of invective and Millicent Martin sings topical songs, while
Roy Kinnear , Willie Rushton , Lance Percival , Kenneth Cope and David Kernan hone their wit on the week's news.

: Rock Docs: Woody Guthrie

Bob Dylan, Jack Kerouac, Bruce Springsteen - just some of those who fell under the spell of Woody Guthrie, the guitar player who discovered America by bumming a ride on a freight train. Driven west from Oklahoma by the poverty that came in the wake of the great duststorms of the 30s he became, like John Steinbeck, a spokesman for the exploited migrant workers of California. Guthrie's most celebrated anthem, This Land Is Your Land, still stands as an ironic retort to God Bless America.
This Arena documentary compares the legend to Woody's own life.

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.
