John Dunn reflects on his recent visit to Japan, from where he broadcast two programmes. The first came from Kyoto, the old imperial city which was celebrating its 1,200th anniversary, and the second looked at how

A Radio Life of Kenneth Williams
For three decades
Kenneth Williams was at the top of his profession - comedian, actor, cabaret host, master of funny voices and outrageous characters.
With the help of some of his memorable and less well-known recordings,
Russell Davies explores the enigma of one of Britain's best-loved comic stars.
With contributions from many of those who knew and worked with him.
First broadcast on Radio 4
Martin Kelner , Radio 2's self-appointed purveyor of taste and quality, wallows in some truly awful
Christmas music, discs that should never have been recorded, let alone publicly released. If you have overindulged, now is the time to punish yourself!

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.
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.
