A magic still lingers about thename of Albert de Courville , whose spectacular shows adorned the London Hippodrome around the 1920s. He brought colourful and exciting shows to a people who were tired of the drab austerity of everyday life. His successes began with Hullo, Ragtime in 1912, and many middle-aged listeners will find among their souvenirs the programmes of de Courville shows with such titles as Razzle- Dazzle, Zig-Zag, The Whirligig, The Whirl of the World, and Jig-Saw. It was de Courville who first brought the music of George Gershwin to this country, and the companies he engaged sparkled with famous names.

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.
