A Panorama Special


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.
Inside the Soviet Union - Kiev
This week, Princess Anne and Prince Philip visit Kiev, the capital of the Ukraine. It is the first time that members of the British Royal Family have ever visited the Soviet Union. What sort of city will they see?
To find out, Julian Pettifer and a Panorama team spent three weeks in Kiev, and with the help of Novosti Press Agency, filmed its citizens at work and at play. They found that, despite enormous destruction during the war and the loss of nearly half its inhabitants, Kiev has grown into a prosperous city, in fact, the third largest in the USSR.
The film looks at what living under a communist system means to the Kiev man in the street - a system that regulates everything from the books he reads to the price of his food and the size of his garden.
Tonight's report provides a rare glimpse into ordinary life in the Soviet Union.
Producer JOHN GAU

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.
