: Drama on 3: Shylock

By Arnold Wesker. A startling new perspective on an age-old story. Shylock's close friend Antonio needs a loan; but 16th-century Venetian law discriminates against Jews, and, for Shylock's own protection, Antonio persuades him to agree on a bond. They laugh as Shylock invents the absurd forfeit of a pound of flesh ... but their mockery of the law could so easily turn to tragedy.

: Sunday Feature: Soundings

The American artist Robert Rauschenberg died last month at the age of 82. In a rare interview recorded in 1998 he talks to Tim Marlow about his career in which he created some of the icons of post-war
American art. He was close friends with other great figures of modernism, such as the musician John Cage and the painter Willem de Kooning, and he rose to fame in New York in the 1950s. Rauschenberg's collaborators, including Merce Cunningham , explain how he managed to blaze a trail for the contemporary desire to blur the boundaries between different art forms.

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.
