: Man of Action

Norman Rodway has always been stage-struck: he has vivid memories of taking part in The Gondoliers during his childhood in Ireland. Since joining the Royal Shakespeare Company he's played many leading parts, including a memorable Richard III , and appeared regularly in films and television. Music keeps him sane, he says, and he has a weakness for the piano: his choice of records this afternoon includes HOROWITZ playing Scarlatti, SCHNABEL playing Mozart, KEMPFF playing Schubert, and CORTOT playing Chopin. I Norman Rodway stars in Tycoon, which begins on Monday BBC1 7.20 pm. feature; page 4)

: Sounds Interesting

Since the successful band 10cc broke up, two of its members, KEVIN GODLEY and LOL CREME, have begun producing adventurous, challenging music which is unique in today's popular spectrum. With their new album L from which Derek Jewell begins playing tonight, they have achieved a standard which gives them a claim to being the most creative and original force in British rock. There's more music too from a band changing direction, THE WHO, together with the guitar artistry of LEE RITENOUR and the songs of NANCY WILSON.

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.
