: Best of Sellers Only Two Can Play

A season of films displaying the many-sided talents of Peter Sellers tonight starring
Mai Zetterling, Virginia Maskell and Richard Attenborough
The librarian in a Welsh provincial town lives in an atmosphere of cluttered discomfort at home and irritation and boredom at work. A fantasy pursuit of the local girls is all that rouses him until he meets the glamorous wife of a town councillor.
Peter Sellers brings an unusually serious undertone to his comic characterisation of the frustrated librarian.

: Civilisation

A personal view by Kenneth Clark 11: The Worship of Nature
' For almost a thousand years the chief creative force in western civilisation was Christianity. Then, in about the year 1730, it suddenly declined - an intellectual society practically disappeared. Of course it left a vacuum. People couldn'get on without a belief in something outside themselves, and during the next hundred years they concocted a new belief which, however irrational it may seem to us, has added a good deal to our civiJisation-a belief in the divinity of nature.'
Kenneth Clark 's examination of this new force takes him to Tin-tern Abbey and the Lake District of Wordsworth, to the Swiss Alps and the ideas of Rousseau - and to the landscapes of Turner and Constable.
Poems of William Collins , Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth spoken by C. Day Lewis
What the series adds up to is a wide-angle view of Western civilisation accompanied by Clark's personal, witty, and ever trenchant commentary. I suddenly realised when I was writing,' he explained last week, 'that these were the things that I have believed, but was too timid to say out loud. One of the nice things about growing older is that you gain the courage of your convictions.' NEWSWEEK

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.
