Disguised as a wandering Greek oculist (Demetrius of Alexandria) and his servant, Marcus and Esca came north of the Wall into the now abandoned province of Valentia, hoping to learn how the Ninth Legion had met its end, and, if it still existed, to recover its lost Eagle. After many months they met a hunter called Guern, who admitted to them that he had been a Roman Legionary of the Ninth, and from him they heard of the Legion's last days.

: STYLE AND VISION

Five broadcasts on European painting by Eric Newton
3--Classicism
Our enjoyment of pictures is too often hampered by the jargon of the art critics. Semi-technical terms like ‘expressionism,' ‘cubism ’—even ‘realism' or ' romanticism '-are often used so imprecisely that they confuse where they should illuminate. To clear up this confusion is one of Mr. Newton's aims in this series: to give more precise meanings to such terms; to show by illustration and example how a clearer understanding of the ' -isms ' and their relationship to each other can contribute greatly to our pleasure in art.
Next Wednesday at 7.15: Romanticism An illustrated pamphlet price 2s. 6d. (containing fifty-three reproductions, six in colour) may be obtained through newsagents and booksellers, or post free from [address removed] (Crossed postal orders, please-not stamps.)

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
