: This Week's Composer

Britten
'In the process of composition his imaginative " inner ear is listening, all the time and at full stretch, to what he is doing: I feel tolerably sure that his ideas never occur to him as anything but sheer sensuous sound, and that it is to this fact that they owe the force and freshness with which they strike the listener's ear.'

: Fireinthe Phoenix

The arts in West Germany since 1945
How have West German writers, artists and musicians responded to the experience of building a new society? What does it mean to be a German today? How have Germans come to terms with their past? Is the mood one of resignation, responsibility or further revolt? Richard Mayne reflects on these questions with, among others, novelists HEINRICH ROLL , winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1972, and uwi JOHNSON, the poet HANS MAGNUS ENZENSBERGER , the film director, VOLKER SCHLONDORFF , this year's winner of the Cannes Grand Prix for his version of Giinter Grass's The Tin Drum, the composers MAURIC1OKAGEL and ARI-BERT REIMANN and the artist JOSEF BEUYS.

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.
