A Prospect of England
An aerial anthology of film, poetry and music with Sir John Betjeman the Poet Laureate.
This film looks from the air at England through the seasons of the year. From the cliffs of Cornwall to the Fame Islands, from Castle Howard to Harlow New Town -this is a land of wild uplands and tamed suburbia, of rural solitude and seaside holiday camps, of industrial chimneys and landscaped gardens, of Roman walls, Georgian canals, steam engines and motorways.
For his commentary SIR JOHN BETJEMAN has chosen verse from the English poets, ranging from Shakespeare to Philip Larkin. Voices:
MICHAEL HORDERN
RICHARD PASCO
PRUNELLA SCALES
JANET SUZMAN
Had enough beauty to make the heart lift in joy and wonder. (DAILY MAIL) Magical and often very funny.
(DAILY EXPRESS)
A luscious, glorious film. (YORKSHIRE POST) Film and music editor EDWARD ROBERTS Producer EDWARD MIRZOEFF (Repeat)

: Horizon

The Great Wine Revolution
In the past ten years more and more people all over the world have taken to drinking table wine. To keep pace the industry has had to call on scientists to help transform the age-old ways of growing grapes and making wine. A new technology is solving the problem in California. In Europe much remains to be done if the notorious
' wine lake', much of it inferior stuff, is to be satisfactorily drained. At the same time scientists are investigating the ultimate mysteries: what gives each type of wine its distinctive taste? Why does the bouquet improve as it lies in a bottle for years? Could the effects of ageing be hastened on? If their work is successful, could it lead to fine wines, equal to vintage Bordeaux or Burgundies, at supermarket prices? Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
Film editor PETER EVANS

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
