: G.B.S. on Music

'Never in my life have I penned an impartial criticism and I hope I never may ...' Cyril Cusack reads from the London music criticisms of George Bernard Shaw (with records) and peppery comments on that sentimental voluptuary Brahms, Dvorak's musical mortuary decorations, a sackful of opera singers and a dead bird in the crimson Covent Garden pigeon-house; a chat with Bob Schumann , sham religious works called oratorios, and a few seasonal comments on Christmas, that atrocious institution with its round of slaughtering, gorging and drinking.

: Transit of Britain

Political figures as remote from each other as Enoch Powell and Henry Kissinger. Harold Mac millan and Harold Wilson , are among the personalities who come under the discerning eye of journalist and author Nora Beloff.
She examines the transit of Britain from its status as a-senior partner in the Grand Alliance against Hitler, to its partnership in the European Community: not a decline and fall, but a peaceful adjustment to the world we have to live in.

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.
