The Art of Chivalry
From the Age of Chivalry exhibition at London's Royal Academy of Arts Peter France introduces two films which examine the reality behind the ideal. When Manfred von Richthofen died in 1918 he had become a figure of myth; a knight of the air with 80 victories to his credit. But the legend of the Red Baron hid a quiet, aloof man whose aristocratic sense of honour drove him to his death.
William Marshal , 700 years earlier, was described as the greatest knight in the world. He was loyal, generous and, above all, the champion of many battles. Yet Marshal was no simple warrior. He used his reputation to drag himself up from obscure origins to become Regent of England and Protector of Henry HI.

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.
