: Time

4/4. New. We think that time is the same everywhere and always. But is it? Are our assumptions true or illusory? Michio Kaku is on a mission to reveal the true nature of time itself: a journey that takes him from science to religion; and from sci-fi to philosophy.


Unknown: Michio Kaku

: Lady Chatterley

Sean Bean and Joely Richardson star in Ken Russell 's 1993 TV dramatisation of the DH Lawrence story. Lady Connie Chatterley is lonely - until she meets gamekeeper Oliver Mellors. Also starring James Wilby , Shirley Anne Field and Brian Blessed. The Chatterley Affair is tomorrow 9pm

Lady Chatterley 9.00pm BBC4
Don't expect a surfeit of sex in Ken Russell's 1993 dramatisation of DH Lawrence's work, starring Sean Bean and Joely Richardson. For the most part, it's a tasteful treatment of a classic, with strong performances from the handsome couple at its heart.
That said, it does include graphic scenes of coupling. At the time, the Broadcasting Standards Council found the sex scenes too long, too frequent and too rough. But that was then, and this now looks a faithful vision of a grown-up story. It's based on all three drafts of Lawrence's story and is showing here in a single instalment, leading up to tomorrow's drama about the book's obscenity trial. (Geoff Ellis)

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.
