: Bird Lives

The influential American saxophonist CHARLIE PARKER was one of the originators of the style of jazz playing known as bebop. He died in 1955 when he was only 34 years old, after a career in which high artistic creation was set against the self-destructive pattern of his life.
In the first of six programmes, Charles Fox shows the range of Parker's music and includes recollections by, among others, Jay McShann, Dizzy Gillespie and Gil Evans. Mono

: French Drama of the 20th Century: Le Soulier de satin

by Paul Claudel, translated and abridged by Jeffrey Wainwright
The third of six plays.
Claudel's status as the master of French dramatic symbolism was established with Jean-Louis Barrault's productions in the 40s and 50s. In England, theatre-goers know little of these epic, atmospheric works, even of Le Soulier, his masterpiece. This shortened version tells of Rodrigo and Prouheze's meeting after ten years of agonised separation.

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.
