: Sunday Feature: The Muse of Censorship

Tomorrow's 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall affords an opportunity to examine the idea that oppression often leads to the creation of great art, and that censorship can act as a muse. While much attention is being focused on Berlin, David Vaughan - who was for many years the editor of Radio Prague - and radio journalist Dariusz Roziak present two portraits of the cultural ecology of Warsaw and Prague. They reveal how artists in Eastern Europe, after struggling with totalitarianism, are grappling with the challenges of freedom. Producer Julian May

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.
