Atlantis .SW7
' The alternative way of life. I think, is to start living it and not play like you're living it. Living life is consuming every little particle of it - and take it in, take it for what it worth. That's one alternative this society might have. to start living instead of dying.
But do we really need an alternative? PETER ADLER almost lets the alternative society answer for itself.

Mucking about with Music
Marghanita Laski accuses the BBC of misusing classical music by ' incongruous juxtapositions, plain tiat-footedness and even over-exposure.' In this critique she suggests how the misuse of music can easily be avoided and how our sound vocabulary can be broadened.

: The Flight of the Bustard

Instead of a covey of poetic partridges, with whirring wings of music, up came a metaphysical bustard, winging its slow, laborious, earth-skimming flight over dreary and level wastes (Coleridge)
DEREK PARKER examines a sadly neglected field - the bad verse of two centuries.
Based largely upon Wyndham Lewis 's The Stuffed Owl, that classic compendium of the Dishevelled Muse. he offers a selection of poems by the famous and the deservedly unknown - to an invited audience.

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.
