An Ever Closer Union....


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Thirty years ago, the Treaty of Rome 'determined to lay the foundations of an ever closer union among the peoples of Europe'.
A series of 11 programmes offering a perspective of the European Community today through portraits of Britain's fellow members.
5: The Greek Paradox
Greeks have a strong sense of their cultural and historical identity. Yet Western
Europeans, who regard the traditions of ancient Greece as the core of their own civilisation, are puzzled by the profile of the modern Greek state. Geographically it is
Balkan, but its people are not
Slavs. It is Christian but neither Catholic nor Protestant. It is not Arabic or Islamic, but Middle Eastern influences are strong. Robert Fox recorded the views of Greeks on the mainland and in the islands and found them vulnerable and divided. Producer HARRY SCHNEIDER

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
