: BBC Proms 2000

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London, this season's Shostakovich focus continues with his symphony composed as "a Soviet artist's reply to just criticism". No less personally felt are Mahler's songs on the death of children, while Bernstein reaffirms the lighter side of life. Dmitri Hvorostovsky (baritone).

In today's Crossing Continents (11.00am R4) Tim Whewett visits Mongolia (above) where members of the Liberal Women's Brain Poof are the driving force behind the introduction of democracy. Did Whewett suddenly feel like a man in crisis, perhaps? He shouldn't: he's an excellent reporter, as this fascinating documentary reveals.
In this afternoon's extremely funny play, two girls set up The Writers' Block Workshop (2.15pm R4) with the ulterior motive of attracting sensitive, creative, heterosexual men. Their cunning plan goes awry, however, when a glamorous siren joins the course.
Later, Tim Martow travels through California to encounter the Internet Dreamers (8.00pm R4) who first conjured up the www.
But you might prefer to tisten to tonight's Prom (7.00pm R3), culminating in Shostakovich's massive Fifth Symphony. SG

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.
