So Whatls Great? "Great" is one of the most overused adjective in current usage. Norman Lebrecht asks what it really means. What is the reason for the apparent need to create iists ofthe "greatest", and in doing so are the critical distinctions between the important and the trivial in art being lost? And is there really a living individual who is unquestionably great? Answers, please, by email to lebrecht.live@bbc.co.uk, or by phone (from 6pm) on [number removed]. Repeated Sunday 12.15am

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.
