: La Fille Mal Gardee

The Royal Ballet features in this superb revival of Frederick Ashton 's 1960 comic masterpiece about life and love in the English countryside, starring
Marianela Nunez and Carlos Acosta and staged at the Royal Opera House in London's Covent Garden. It's a multi-faceted piece that has something for everyone - dancing chickens, clog and maypole dances, and a pantomime dame. Headstrong and self-serving by nature, her attempt to marry off her daughter to the imbecilic son of an affluent farmer looks to be thwarted by impassioned love. Anthony Twiner conducts the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House.

Greenock, Scotland: teenager Liam wants nothing more than to buy a caravan for his drug-using mother when she is released from prison.

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

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.
