: CAP Out of Hand

The Common Agricultural Policy accounts for about three-quarters of EEC spending and its costs are growing so fast that the Community could run out of money next year. On the eve of the Common Market summit in Brussels, John Eidinow examines the policy at the heart of Britain's quarrel over the EEC budget. What changes are needed in the CAP? Will entrenched national interests make radical reform impossible?

: Lazy as I Am!

I wrote when the melodies came to find me and seduce me. But when 1 had to go and find them, I cancelled the journey, lazy as I am! '
(GIOACCHINO ROSSINI)
In August 1829. Rossini's William Tell had its first night in Paris. It was his 39th opera and he was only 37-rich, successful, an international celebrity. Yet ten days later he went home to Italy for a rest. He never wrote another opera and the rest lasted, in effect, for the remaining 39 years of his life. Did Rossini really give up because, as he said, he was lazy, or was there more to it than that? Eleanor Bron tells the story of Rossini, William Tell and what happened after.

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.

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.
