: THE THIRTIES IN BRITAIN

The Left
Compiled and narrated by CONSTANTINE FITZGIBBON
The Thirties were a period of political alignment, in some cases more apparent than real. The division between Right and Left. particularly once the Spanish Civil War had started, seemed absolute. It was the signing of the Nazi-Soviet Pact in August 1939 that showed how basically fallacious this cleft was.

: THE NATURE OF CONTEMPORARY HISTORY

by RACHEL WALL
Lecturer in Contemporary International History in the University of Oxford
Is ' contemporary history ' a contradiction in terms? Or simply an arbitrary ' most recent chunk ' of modern history? Or just scholarly comment on current affairs? Rachel Wall explores the view that it is none of these things, but a basic rethinking of the aims, methods, and content of historical study: a rethinking deeply involved with our strategies for action in the present and future.

: ANTI-POETRY

The first of two programmes compiled and narrated by J. M. COHEN
The Demolition Men: Villon. Mayakovsky, and the Beats
Mr. Cohen examines the claim of the Chilean poet Nicanor Parra that every important poetic movement has been followed by an anti-poetic reaction. In disputing this claim he advances his own definition of anti-poetry and Illustrates his argument by poems chosen from a wide field. This programme considers the negative aspects of anti-poetry, his second the undoubted positive Qualities he finds in it.

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.

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