We are becoming familiar with American dramatic writers, but few know the New York actors and stage for which they write
Broadway Actors

A Great Project for the Performing Arts
MICHEL SAINT-DENIS , C.B.E., former general director of the Old Vic Centre and the Regional Centre in Strasbourg, examines the scope and significance of the Lincoln Centre for the Performing Arts which is to house the opera. ballet, drama, the associated schools, and an experimental theatre
CHARLES MAROWITZ , an American theatre correspondent who has produced plays in Greenwich Village, tries to show that ' Off-Broadway,' far from being a growth on the fringe of Broadway, has been making a vital contribution to New York theatre

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
