: Open Court at the British Museum

On 6 December, the British Museum will unveil the Queen Elizabeth II Great Court. This film profiles the museum, its history and work and the events leading up to the opening of Lord Foster's glass-covered development.

Controversy surrounds the use of the wrong stone in the building work at the British Museum, but this report goes deeper, to survey the overall impact of changes in the week the Queen performs the official opening. Lord Foster talks about the remodelling of the Great Court, which has transformed a hidden courtyard at the centre of the museum into a covered public square the size of a football pitch. Nigel Barley, curator of the new African Galleries, reveals what will be housed there. As well as the new features, the programme celebrates other aspects of the 250-year-old collection with contributions from Sir David Attenborough and curators specialising in areas ranging from Samurai swords to toys and games.

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.
