Civilisation: 3: Romance and Reality

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 personal view by Kenneth Clark

"The gothic world, the world of chivalry, courtesy and romance; a world in which serious things were done with a sense of play-where even war and theology could become a sort of game; and when architecture reached a point of extravagance unequalled in history. And yet these centuries produced some of the greatest spirits in the whole history of man, amongst them St. Francis of Assisi and Dante."

Kenneth Clark journeys from a castle on the Loire, through the hill towns of Tuscany and Umbria to the cathedral baptistry at Pisa, as he explores the aspirations and achievements of the later Middle Ages in France and Italy.

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.
