: The British Empire: Echoes of Britannia's Rule

A series of 13 programmes 13:The Setting of the Sun
The sad-happy ending of the Empire in Africa. Where there had been no white settlement, independence came easily: Africans were encouraged and trained by British administrators to prepare themselves for self-government.
Where there had been white settlement, as in Kenya and Rhodesia, it was to be more difficult for the British to withdraw gracefully. In many places, and not only in Africa, the British army was to be as much involved in winding up the Empire as it had been in its creation.
Narrated by Robert Hardy

A Private Face in a Public Place Glenda Jackson talks to KENNETH TYNAN about her career as an actress in repertory; with the Royal Shakespeare Company; in films and TV. Featuring excerpts from her award-winning performance in Elizabeth R, Women in Love, The Music Lovers, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Marat/Sade.
' I don'mind reading how awful I am if somebody offers me a lifeline to show me how I can be better.'
'The theatre thinks of itself as tucked away somewhere, away from the hurly-burly, slightly superior, this informs everything it does - that is why it is not functioning the way it should.'
; The terrible danger about acting is that you can begin to believe what other people say about you be it good or bad.'

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.
