Peter Watkins's drama-documentary centres on the Battle of Culloden - the last battle fought on British soil, and one of the most mishandled and brutal - in which young pretender Bonnie Prince Charlie was defeated in the 1745 rebellion.
AJP Taylor's unscripted, unrehearsed talks brought history alive for millions of television viewers. This impromptu talk was recorded in 1979, and - before illness intervened -was intended as the first in a series called The Years Between.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
