: Jazz File

Central Avenue Sounds: Early Days
In the first of a new series, Alyn Shipton investigates the forgotten jazz scene of Central Avenue in Los Angeles. From the twenties until the fifties, Central Avenue was the jazz capital of the West Coast. But then its theatres and clubs closed and all signs of its rich musical heritage disappeared. Historian Steve Isoardi sets the political and social background, and authors Phil Pastras and Floyd Levin look back at the pioneering music of Kid Ory, Jelly Roll Morton and Paul Howard. And saxophonist Vi Redd remembers the lively Creole community which kept Louisiana customs alive in the West when jazz first arrived in California.

: Opera on 3

Live from the Met: L 'Italiana in Algeri
Written in 27 days when the composerwas 21 years old, The Italian Girl in Algiers was Rossini's first great comic success. The
Italian heroine Isabella -feisty, intelligent and, of course, gorgeous - turns up in Algiers in a bid to rescue her lover Lindoro from the local Turkish governor Mustafa the Bey, dimwitted philanderer given to threats of impalement. The story unfolds to some of Rossini's most sparkling music. During the interval Rodney Milnes continues his series Opera Snaps- a sideways glance at each of this season's Met operas.

: Between the Ears

An Insular Motet
By David Pownall. The year is 1213 and an interdict from Pope Innocent proscribing any form of music in the churches of England makes a beleaguered and isolated King John realise that he has to find some kind of a sound to feed the soul of his people. What he commissions is a sound so strange that it is heard as music without music. It is An Insular Motet.

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
