: DAME MARIE RAMBERT

recalls the birth and growth of English ballet
In conversation with CARL WILDMAN
For forty years Dame Marie has encouraged British choreographers. dancers, and designers to develop the talents which she has divined in them. Through her, larger companies have been enriched with vital elements-for example, the Royal Ballet with its Director and Principal Choreographer, Sir Frederick Ashton-while to this day she has ceaselessly fostered her own School and Company.

: The Complete Lessons of the War

A sequence of poems by Henry Reed
Naming of Parts
Judging Distances
Movement of Bodies
Unarmed Combat
Returning of Issue
Spoken by HENRY REED and FRANK DUNCAN
Produced by Douglas Cleverdon
Naming of Parts is probably the best-known poem of the second world war and is now, incredibly, considered an appropriate subject for school examinations. It was first published in 1946 with Judging Distances and Unarmed Combat in Henry Reed's A Map of Verona. Movement of Bodies appeared in The Listener some years later. The final poem, Returning of Issue, was completed a short time ago.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
