: Sunday Feature: The UncompromisingWorld of Jerome Robbins

West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof, Fancy Free, Dances at a Gathering- the American choreographer Jerome Robbins stamped his mark indelibly on the musical and the ballet from the forties until his death in 1998. The energy, poetry and humour of his dances showed a rare talent. But he was a paradox. Behind the human sensitivity of his dances lay a perfectionist whose demands on his dancers often amounted to cruelty; although his work was mostly apolitical, he was caught up in the Communist witch-hunt of the fifties and "named names". Rodney Greenberg talks to dancers, colleagues and critics in an attempt to fathom the man whose theatre legacy is still a potent force on stage. Producer Richard Bannerman

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.
