: Bach Cities

Joshua Rifkin continues his tour around the places where Bach lived and worked, and reaches Weimar. Bach first worked here as a violinist and lackey when he was a teenager, returning in 1708 for a stay of nine years during which he wrote most of his greatest works for organ. The original
Weimar chapel was destroyed by fire in the late 18th century, but organist John Butt demonstrates an instrument at the court chapel of Altenburg, where Bach himself once played.

: Sunday Feature: Swimming toward the Sun

Le Corbusier was arguably the 20th century's greatest architect; an idealist whose "white cube" houses and visionary writings brought him worldwide acclaim. Yet as he grew older, he claimed a connection with the Cathars, a persecuted 13th-century sect. Why would a renowned modernist, an atheist from a Protestant background, insist on an affinity with medieval Catholic heretics?
Jonathan Glancey explores Corbusier's possible reasons and considers the effect this spiritual bond had on his life and work. Producer Rebecca Nicholson

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.
