: Morning Performance

A Week at the Movies
With Tommy Pearson.
3: Hollywood Part 1. The first of two programmes this week in which the BBC National Orchestra of Wales under
Eric Stern focus on great Hollywood film music. Hollywood has always been the mecca of the movies, and like the stars and directors, musicians and composers also flocked there in hope of gaining fame and fortune. Music includes the wide-open spaces of Dmitri Tiomkin 's opening music for The High and the Mighty, Leonard Rosenman 's punchy music to Rebel without a Cause and Miklos Rosza 's epic march from Quo Vadis - The Red Pony. Plus John Williams 's poignant theme to
Schindler's List and his unforgettably stirring music for the Indiana Jones films.

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.
