: Night Waves: Landmark

The Centre Georges Pompidou was opened 30 years ago in 1977. Today its external casing of brightly coloured pipes and escalators is regarded as a classic of contemporary architecture and a major visitors' attraction in Paris. But at the time of its creation, the Pompidou Centre's architects, Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers , were relative unknowns, and their distinctive design according to one commentator
"turned the architecture world upside down". Philip Dodd and guests discuss the origins, history and legacy of a building that can truly claim to be a modern landmark. Producer Anthony Denselow

: The Essay

4/4. Elgar and Englishness. The critic
Ernest Newman described Elgar's music as expressive of the very soul of the British race. Nalini Ghuman , professor of music at Mills College, California, however, argues that the critical obsession with identifying in Elgar's music an essential Englishness has served to confine his work within the nation's boundaries, bolstering nostalgia for the imperial past.

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.
