starring
Anthony Quinn. Alan Bates Irene Papas , Lila Kedrova A shy young British writer journeys to the island of Crete to take charge of the lignite mine bequeathed him by his father. He is soon taken under the wing of Zorba, a gregarious Greek peasant with an infectious love of life. It's Zorba's readiness 1 for adventure and romance that precipitates a series of Greek tragedies which demands an incurable optimist to see them through.

Introduced by Humphrey Burton
Big Ware: a portrait of George Curtis and the story of the survival of Littlethorpe Potteries. George Curtis, 75, is the son of a bargee and spent his youth delivering coal to the big houses on the canal.
He says: ' As winter came, I tried to get work in the pottery and was put on work loading brick flats.' Once he got on the wheel between shifts of firing the kiln and shovelling coal, he found it to be a job that he liked and as he says: ' Once into clay it sticks.'
In his long battle to keep the business open, fighting against ' peat pots, paper pots, jiffy pots and now a plastic pot-anything but a flippin' clay pot, and that's all they were wanting', he has found that market gardeners are now ordering hand-thrown garden pots.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
