The Fifth Generation Since the most recent generation of directors graduated from China's only film school in Peking - the fifth since the school was founded in the 1950s - the reputation of Chinese cinema has grown abroad. Films like Chen Kaige's Yellow Earth have been acclaimed at international festivals, but at home such films are the focus of controversy as the Chinese leadership reconsiders its attitude to the arts. Film-maker and critic Tony Rayns, who has just returned from China, reports on 'The Fifth Generation'. Producer JULIAN MAY

Canterbury's Divisions
The Church of England has traditionally been broad and its various wings and movements have ensured that questions of belief and doctrine, of relations with the state and with other churches have been hard fought. But the issues which have come to the fore in recent years have sharpened the divisions within the Church and presented her with choices which will fundamentally affect her character and direction.
As the General Synod prepares to meet in York, Chris Cviic assesses the balance offerees within the Church of England and asks what kind of institution may emerge from the current uncertainties. Producer FRASER STEEL

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.
