An American soldier of fortune, wanted by the police, flees to a small Caribbean island and is involved in a bitter dispute between rival plantation owners.

: CHRONICLE

HUMAN SACRIFICE
This summer, Norwegian archaeologists excavating in Orkney came upon the grave of a Viking Chieftain. Among its miraculously well-preserved contents were a small pile of female bones, the first indisputable evidence ever found for Viking human sacrifice. Chronicle cameras recorded from start to finish the delicate process which threw this dramatic new light on life in the Orkneys a thousand years ago.
THE GHOST SHIP
Thirty years ago archaeologists came upon one of the richest finds ever made in Britain, the Sutton Hoo treasure ship. But the ship itself consisted only of rivets and stains in the sand. Now by a remarkable process technicians from the British Museum have made a ninety-foot-long cast of the vessel, bringing to life again the great Anglo-Saxon warship.

: RELEASE

The weekly arts magazine
SOUND THE TRUMPETS, BEAT THE DRUMS
At the end of the Arts Festival season, Release looks back on the one that caused the greatest stir.
The Shiraz Festival of Music brings together differing cultures in an ideal background, for Iran stands at a point where East and West have always mingled and the great palace of Persepolis offers a unique setting for widely diverse performances.
Peter Heyworth , music critic of The Observer, reports. Directed by MAHMOUD KHOSROWSHAHI
THE POETRY IS IN THE PITY
It is fifty years since the death of the greatest of the First World War poets, Wilfred Owen
Release tries to find out how far the experience of poetic officers like Owen was shared by the men who fought alongside them in the trenches. Men of Owen's regiment, the Manchester Regiment, recall their own experiences of the First World War, experiences which are set against some of Owen's most famous poems.

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.
