: Operas of the French Revolution

Andrea Chenier by Umberto Giordano
The first in a series of three operas set at the time of the Revolution. The libretto by LUIGI illica, who was one of Puccini's librettists, is based on the life of Andre 1 Chdnier, a distinguished French poet of the 18th century. At first an ardent supporter of the Revolution, his idealism and liberal views later led to his death on the guillotine only days before the end of the Reign of Terror.

7.0 The Prisoners
A series of nine programmes 8: Prison and the Community
Many large old prisons are situated in built-up residential areas. Yet they have surprisingly little contact with the local community, in spite of the large numbers of discharged prisoners who will come out to live and work in the neighbourhood. What are the reasons for this ' remoteness ' from the community? How do residents feel about the prison and its inmates? Presented by LARRY HELD

: Drama Now: The Caucasian in the Woodpile

by Ken Whitmore
'Sir Gilbert was the original Grandfather of the pinstripe Mafia. Even before Redcliffe-Maud was dreamed of, he realised that the beauty of a three-tier local authority with split functions is that nobody has the slightest idea of who's responsible for what and the scope for jiggery-pokery is infinite. One of the minor robber barons, you might say. But a forerunner of great moguls like me - and you if you learn to place your field carefully.'

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.
