'People Power' or 'People's Army'?
The Philippines has survived its first troubled year of 'People Power' and President
Cory Aquino has won overwhelming electoral support for a new
Constitution. But the threat of a military takeover remains as long as the war with the Communist guerrillas continues. Max Easterman reports from the enemy strongholds of the New People's Army which, like President Aquino, claims to be the Philippines' best hope for land reform and social justice.

: The Tuesday Feature: A Winter in Majorca

with Eleanor Bron as George Sand, Robert Powell as Chopin
"We were treated like outcasts at Majorca, because of Chopin's cough and also because we did not go to church. I should have to write ten volumes to give you an idea of the cowardice, deceit, stupidity and spite of this stupid, thieving and bigoted race." (George Sand)
The novelist George Sand and the composer Fryderyk Chopin went to Majorca at the height of their love affair in 1838. What happened there was as dramatic as any of the scenes in her own romantic novels. It never stopped raining and their lodgings turned out to be in a damp, echoing monastery. Yet she wrote some of her most celebrated words while they were on the island, and Chopin wrote music which 'smelt of paradise'. Their story is narrated by Peter Barkworth
(Re-broadcast Friday 11.0am LW)

Fryderyk Chopin: Robert Powell
Narrator: Peter Barkworth

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.
