: Music of Tchaikovsky's Russia

The first of 13 programmes examining the relationship of Tchaikovsky as man and musician to other leading composers in the Russia he knew. The Russian Orthodox Church provided the only long-standing musical tradition in Russia and this first programme illustrates Tchaikovsky's response to that heritage. Father Michael Fortounatto takes us through the Sunday liturgy and the BBC SINGERS, conducted by KERRY WOODWARD , perform the musical sections, in settings by Tchaikovsky, Kalinnikov. Tschesnokov, Kompaneisky and Ipolitov-Ivanov.

: Scientifically Speaking

Introduced by John Maddox
Is hay fever inherited? The tendency to develop certain diseases in adult life, for example fusion of bones in the spine (ankylosing spondylitis), multiple sclerosis, and some rare forms of cancer, can be detected before the disease shows itself, by identifying specific genes which are linked to the immune response system of the body. Geneticist PROFESSOR WALTER BODMER, from the University of Oxford, describes how research in this area may lead to a better understanding of the cause and nature of these diseases; and rheumatologist DR DEREK BREWERTON , from Westminster Hospital, London, outlines its clinical significance.

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.
