: Tanglewood: White Ties and Red Sox

Bostonians love three things above all else: their Red Sox baseball team, the swan boats in the Public Garden, and the Symphony. In this oral history of Boston's world-famous orchestra,
Humphrey Burton hears from players and administrators, concert-goers, broadcasters and critics, as well as from members of the Boston
Brahmins, whose generosity has underpinned the organisation from
1881. The orchestra started life pretty much as a German ensemble, and today - with Seiji Ozawa as music director - it is still America's least
American orchestra.

: Tanglewood: If I Die in a Combat Zone

"My books are in essence about illusion. I know in my own life I practise that plenty - pretending
Vietnam didn't mean anything to me. Yet here I am, 20 years later, writing about it." The drive to understand the trauma of the Vietnam War has spawned hundreds of books, the majority written by those who served there. One of the most acclaimed of these writers today is Boston-based novelist Tim O'Brien , whose books have become bestsellers. Michael Goldfarb
considers his work and the issues raised by his writing.

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.
