: Distant Chords

Three immigrant communities reflect on the role that music plays in bridging the cultural divide between their homelands and their new lives in Britain. 3: Portugal a Strange Way of Living
Palestinian singer and musicologist Reem Kelani concludes her series of musical journeys around migrant communities in Britain. This week she embraces the music of the UK's Portuguese community. The theme of longing is intricately woven into the passionate strains of fado-the best-known musical genre to be exported by Portugal. Its most popular exponent was the late
Amalia Rodrigues , and for many UK-based Portuguese the mere mention of Amalia or the sound of fado is a poignant reminder of what they have left behind. Producer Tony Phillips

: Afternoon Play: Beyond the Canvas

A series of three plays inspired by great paintings. 1: The Last of England by David Calcutt.
This oval-shaped, Pre-Raphaelite masterpiece by Ford Madox Brown depicts emigrants on a boat bound for Australia. In the foreground is an artist and his wife, who holds a young child under her shawl. Against a background of interviews with visitors and staff at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, who give their own personal responses to the painting, Calcutt's play imagines what happened to these characters once the ship set sail.

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.
