: The Composer in Jazz

Jazz is essentially an art of performance in which the composer has to create a framework involving the improvising soloist. In this series of seven programmes Charles Fox examines how the role of the jazz composer has developed from the 1920s until the present day, and he shows how individual composers have tackled the problem. 2: Duke Ellington
This programme deals largely with the years up to the mid-40s. a period during which Ellington laid the foundations of his composing style.

: Andre Malraux

The author of some of the great French literature of modern times, and a man of action who organised a squadron in the Spanish Civil War and eventually became De Gaulle's Minister of Culture, will be 75 tomorrow.
What is the stature of Malraux as a writer and as a man of action? How far does his reputation depend upon myth and how far upon genuine achievement?

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.
