: A Sussex Samarkand

A summer's day journey, odd, outlandish, mysterious, to a place so familiar that you have to laugh. Writer Leslie Thomas and director Randal Beattie went on this journey and made discoveries. Under neighbourly Sussex skies they detected a whiff of the Orient, found a temple lost beneath flowers and weeds, saw a make-believe castle perched above a commuter railway line. They conversed with young nomads, heard three solemn ladies perform a musical rite in a grassy arena, and listened while an old wise man poetically remembered the long ago. At night they were drawn to raucous music and cavorting dancers in a tomb where 14 coffins once lay; and they filmed a ceremony of undressing so secretly that the participants never knew they were watched. Says Leslie Thomas , ' The road to Samarkand was the caravan trail to the fabled city and I see Brighton as a fabled city.'

: Review Elmyr - the true picture?

Introduced by David Jones
A film by the famous French director FRANÇOIS REICHENBACH about the man who has been called the world's greatest forger.' In 1969 Elmyr de Hory, who lives on the Spanish island of Ibiza, was revealed as the originator of an estimated 1,000 pictures that have made their way on to the international art market over the past 20 years - pictures purporting to be by artists like Picasso, Matisse, Dufy, Modigliani. In this film Elmyr demonstrated his art for the first time and told his own extraordinary story.
Produced and directed by FRANCOIS REICHENBACH and RICHARD DREW1TT

: Gregynog

Set in a secluded Montgomery-shire valley in mid-Wales, Gregynog was once the home of two sisters, Margaret and Gwendoline Davies. Heirs to a coal magnate's vast fortune, they were- lovers of beauty and perfection, and so turned their home into a centre for artistic activity.
Tonight Lindsay Evans recalls some of Gregynog's atmosphere during the 20s and 30s and in the company of Dora Herbert Jones looks at its most lasting legacy-the books printed and published privately by the Gregynog Press.

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.
