Composer of such well-known works as Peter and the Wolf, The Love of Three Oranges. and the Classical Symphony, Prokofiev was born in Tsarist Russia in 1891 and died in Moscow in 1953 on the same day as Stalin.

: Medical Mysteries: The Scourge from India

The dreadful epidemic which has been causing such ravages in Calcutta and the southern provinces has broken out in camp. It is a species of cholera morbus. There is an opinion that the water in the tanks, the only water we have at this place, may be unwholesome and add to the disease (Major-General Lord Hastings, 1877)
Cholera has Been in the headlines this year, but is unlikely ever again to attack mankind with the ferocity of the great pandemics of the last century. Written by ARTHUR SWINSON Narrator DAVID MAHLOWE Other parts ANTONY BODEN

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.
