: PROGRESS AT BRASILIA

DAVID CREASE in conversation with J. M. RICHARDS
In spite of the political changes in Brazil the building of the new capital has gone forward. It is now lived in by nearly 100,000 people, and it is fair to ask how the grand conception of a monumental city has stood up to the economic and practical realities.
David Crease is an English architect who worked with Oscar Niemeyer in Brasilia and is now practising there. Second broadcast

: MISSING THE POINT IN HISTORY

Talk by SIR LLEWELLYN WOODWARD until recently
Professor of History at Oxford and Princeton
Great battles are not always the decisive events they are taken to be: the changes most important for the future often pass unnoticed by contemporaries. Sir Llewellyn Woodward talks about examples of failure to see the wood for the trees and asks whether in our generation, although we are more conscious of the fact of change, we are likely to show any more perspicacity than our ancestors in recognising the turning points that occur before our eyes.

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.
