David Attenborough takes an incredible journey into the world of plants.
Living Together. Survival tactics create unlikely alliances. Plants often rely on animals, fungi and each otherforfood, protection or a home - and they are not always grateful partners.

: Concertos for Coventry

A special concert, live from Coventry Cathedral, to commemorate today's
50th anniversary of the bombingof the German city Dresden, twin city of Coventry whose gothic cathedral was destroyed by Nazi warplanes in 1940. Artists and war is the theme of the event which features the BBC
Philharmonic, conducted by Yan Pascal Tortelier, performingBeethoven's
Fourth Piano Concerto, with soloist Stephen Kovacevich , and Sir Michael Tippett 's Piano Concerto, played by Martino Tirimo - a work directly inspired by the Beethoven concerto, and representingTippett's own, very different response to war.
Sir Michael celebrated his 90th birthday last month. During the interval, he looks at the composer's experience as a pacifist in Britain duringthe last war, with contributions from friends and associates, and there is archive footage of Dresden and Coventry. Composer Michael Berkeley narrates a feature in which tonight's two pianists discuss the similarities between the concertos.

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.
