Is There Art in the Bloq?
In a media environment that is changing by the minute, news and comment about the arts are increasingly being driven by first-person websites. Every twist in the latest La Scala scandal is instantly reported. An opening at the Met or Guggenheim is hotly reviewed online hours before the first word appears in print. Does this signal the end of traditional criticism, or the emergence of a new interactive audience? Can people trust what they read in blogs and is a new art-form emerging? Producer Jessica Isaacs

: Drama on 3: Professor Bernhardi

By Arthur Schnitzler. In the Vienna of 1900, a distinguished Jewish doctor prevents a Catholic priest administering last rites to a dying patient. His actions provoke a political witch-hunt, leading to the professor's trial and imprisonment. Set among the top-hatted intelligentsia of Freud's Vienna, Schnitzler's play exposes the mire of prejudice beneath its glittering surface. It is both a moral thriller and a comedy, populated by a gallery of roguish, warring politicians and doctors, and shot through with great satirical humour. Cast includes
Christopher Godwin , Dale Rapley , John Stahl ,
Andrew Woodall , John Dougall , Justin Salinger , Andrew Havill , Mark Lockyer , Tom Godwin , David Horovitch , Geoffrey Beevers , Sophie Roberts and Rachel Atkins. Producer Mark Rosenblatt

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.
