: ONE PAIR OF EYES

A series of highly personal films
Patrick Moore astronomer, asks
CAN YOU SPEAK VENUSIAN?
For more than twelve years Patrick Moore has been putting forward the conventional views of modern astronomy in books and on television. Tonight he steps off that platform to question whether orthodox views should be as readily accepted as they are.
Is the sun really a hot, flaming body dashing about the sky?
Have astronauts really proved that the earth and the moon are round?
Might not the universe be enclosed by a giant magnet?
Is not the ultimate man already living on Saturn in the form of an incandescent egg, forty feet tall?
These ideas and more are put forward in a cheerful, convincing, and fearless way by a number of ' independent thinkers.' Patrick Moore feels that we conventionalists (and he includes himself) would do well to listen to their ideas and at least to emulate their outlook on life.

ANTHONY de LOTBINIERE

The weekly arts magazine
TOM COURTENAY opened on Wednesday at the Garrick Theatre, London, in She Stoops to Conquer for a limited season, and is soon to be seen in the film Otley. He looks back to his screen debut in The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner and his career since then, and reflects on playing both the eighteenth-century comedy of Goldsmith and the modern international tongue-in-cheek comedy of Dick Clement 's film.

The report on Chester is due to be published this week. In this film Donald Insall , the architect chosen to study Chester, revisits the city, outlines some of the problems, and suggests some solutions. Directed by NICHOLAS GARNHAM

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.
