: Art That Shook the World

Eisenstein's Battleship Potemkin. Regarded as a film that marked the birth of contemporary cinematic language, Sergei Eisenstein 's Battleship Potemkin (1925) also remains one of the most heavily censored films of the 20th century, banned by governments fearful of its propaganda for the Bolshevik cause. Film-maker Renny Bartlett tells the story of the making of the film and deconstructs the sequence on the Odessa Steps, six minutes of montage that would inspire such diverse talents as Francis Bacon , Woody Allen , Brian De Palma and Ken Russell.

: Walk On By: the Story of Popular Song

LThe penultimate programme from the eight-part series that tracks the evolution of popular music.
Soundtrack. Broadway and Hollywood musicals have produced some of the greatest songs of all time, and the fortunes of many turgid shows and uninspiring films have been transformed by a hit tune. Tonight's programme examines the history of the show tune, from Cole Porter and Rodgers and Hammerstein to Tim Rice , Andrew Lloyd Webber and, finally, Disney, which in recent years has brought about the renaissance of the big movie song.
The stories behind such classic songs as Night and Day,
Over the Rainbow, My Funny Valentine, Somewhere, Cabaret, I Don't Know How to Love Him and Stayin' Alive are told by, among others, Stephen Sondheim ,
Kanderand Ebb , Tim Rice , Georgio Moroder, Robin Gibb and Alan Menken. Narrated by Clive Owen.

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.
