A film portrait of a working retirement.
The Most Rev. Archbishop Lord Fisher of Lambeth, Archbishop of Canterbury from 1945-1961 who is now living more or less quietly in a Dorset village, and today celebrates his eightieth birthday talks to Kenneth Hudson.

"I can imagine Sir Hugh Greene chuckling all round the corridors of Television Centre at the title 'Primates are Human'." (Daily Sketch)
"Lord Fisher, always outspoken, has not changed. And it was this which made the programme a delightful cameo of the week." (Daily Mirror)
"This human and entertaining portrait..." (The Guardian)
"The camera sometimes can make a point so much more vividly than words.... These scenes from a country rectory were quite endearing." (The Times)

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.
