Space Enough to Sculpt For
Imagine the staid and solemn galleries of the Royal Academy, marked up and let out to the sort of sculpture that creeps, crawls, stretches out into the air - iron bars, steel rods, bits of machinery, sculpture far too big for any ordinary room or gallery!
Burlington House, tomorrow - and the opening of an exhibition based on the idea of 24 contemporary British sculptors.
Edwin Mullins looks at British Sculptors 72.

Tolkien in Oxford
J. R. R. Tolkien, 80 years old this week, retired Oxford don, author of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit - set books in Europe and Asia, cult books in The States, a craze amongst the young in Britain - so much so that one of the 'underground' pop music centres in London was even called 'The Middle Earth' after the country Tolkien invented.
A repeat showing of a film made in Oxford with Tolkien himself and the students who read him.

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.
