: The Elgin Marbles

In 1801, Thomas Bruce , the Seventh Earl of Elgin and British ambassador to the Ottoman Empire, removed antiquities from Turkish-occupied Athens. Huge debts later forced him to sell his collection to the British government, and sections of the Parthenon Frieze were put on display at London's British Museum - where they have remained ever since, despite Greece's repeated requests that they be returned.
In this dramatised documentary, critic Andrew Graham -
Dixon explores the convoluted history of the sculptures, artefacts whose ownership has been the biggest bone of contention in art for over 200 years, while experts consider the arguments for and against the relics' return to Greece.

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

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.
