: THE LOST LEADER

James Ramsay MacDonald
For years the tragic figure of Ramsay MacDonald has haunted the Labour Movement. Three times Prime Minister of Britain, Mac Donald , at a time when the country was facing her direst financial crisis, forsook his own Labour Government to form a coalition with the Conservatives. For years Labour was not to forgive him.
The men who fought with and against MacDonald-among them Lord Avon and Sir Oswald Mosley , Malcolm MacDonald and Emanuel Shinwell-give their own account of the rise and decline of Britain's first Labour Prime Minister.
Commentator, Robert Kee
Producer, JULIAN JACOTTET
Postponed from August 29

: CONTRASTS

A series of music and arts features
South Bank Story
A film about the SOUTH BANK ARTS CENTRE with contributions from
Desmond Plummer
Leader of the G.L.C.
Hubert Bennett
Architect to the G.L.C.
John Denison
General Manager, Royal Festival Hall and artists appearing there during one week in July
Produced by IAN ENGELMANN
BBC film
At the turn of the century the South Bank of the Thames was largely an industrial slum. As land became available the prospects for improving the area grew brighter. By 1951 the Festival Hall was completed-now there are two concert halls, a recital hall, an up-to-date art gallery, and the National Film Theatre, and it is hoped by 1973 that the National Theatre will be there too.
This programme looks at a typical week of carefully planned concerts and events.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
