: THE ANCIENT KINGDOMS

A view of Wales with music by Daniel Jones played by a section of the BBC Welsh Orchestra
Narrated by Meredith Edwards
The rock faces of Caernarvonshire tower over what long ago was the kingdom of Gwynedd, and represent to most Welshmen the heart of their homeland.
But there are many aspects of Wales-which was once four kingdoms, difficult to conquer and difficult to unite.
This film evokes some of the features and concerns that symbolise their nation for Welshmen and many others.
Production, JOHN ORMOND

: SIR TYRONE GUTHRIE

In the first of two programmes one of the greatest theatre directors of our time talks about the theatre as Ritual.
' Drama is a ritual expression of a past event, or events; whether such events "really" happened, like the murder of Julius Caesar , or whether they are fictitious, is irrelevant. The ritual of Drama can be, and perhaps should be. regarded as a religious ritual.
' It is reasonable to suppose that when primitive man felt the return of spring-warmer, longer days, soft rain, sprouting grass-he celebrated his joy in spontaneous song and dance and sexual abandon. But, when spring returned year after year, the celebrations gradually ceased to be spontaneous and hardened into ritual.'

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.
