: Story Time

Nijinsky
The biography of the legendary dancer written by his widow ROMOLA NIJINSKY abridged by DEREK PARKER from Nijinsky and The Last Years of Nijinsky read by ANNA BURDEN 1: Imperial Russia
The story starts in the brilliant era of the Imperial School of Dancing and the Imperial Russian Ballet. It tells of the beginnings of the Diaghilev Ballet, Nijinsky's ten years of international fame, and his insanity in 1919. It tells of the long, unsuccessful search for a cure, and the adventures he and his wife met in the course of it. The story is as tragic and thrilling as any written by the great Russian novelists

: What Did You Do in the War, Daddy?

The story of the Bevin Boys on their 25th anniversary.

On Christmas Eve 1943 a junior clerk at the Ministry of Labour drew the numbers out of a hat, and a few weeks later, early in 1944, the first batch of conscripts for the mines reported for duty 'would happily have swapped a twenty-mile march in the infantry to going down the pits'

'I'd go down again, like Prince Philip I'd go down, but not to work there any more' ' Mining brought me out completely. It knocked this superior white-collar attitude out of me for a start'

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
