Cradle of England

Synopsis

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.
A series of six programmes giving a view of man and his expanding society seen in the archaeological landscape of the South.
2: The Age of Experiment
Britain's first industrial revolution arrived about 4,000 years ago when man first discovered the raw materials beneath his feet-such materials as copper, tin and gold. Copper and tin he used for tools and weapons - the gold was turned into incredibly fine ornaments for his tribal chiefs.
With the new wealth came trade, and an early European common market sprang up. It was a time of dramatic change. Presented by Professor Barry Cunliffe from Oakley Down, Dorset with Dr Colin Renfrew David Leigh
Producer HUGH PITT (BBC South)

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.
