: TALES FROM EUROPE

The Windmill
An adventure in three parts from Bulgaria
PART 2
Three boys on holiday meet Mary and her friend Domenica and visit a travelling circus. An antique necklace which has been taken from the old man at the windmill by a local ne'er-do-well arouses the interest of the circus folk, the children, and of Domenica's father who owns the mill.
In part two the circus people go on a treasure hunt, with the children trailing them. But the old man at the windmill has other riches to show.

: WILD NEW WORLD

A new film series by HEINZ SIELMANN Commentary by Peter Scott
Five programmes about the wildlife of the New World
4: INDIAN SUMMER
In the calm, dry, hazy weather of late autumn, Heinz Sielmann moves southwards from the Arctic Circle to the Canadian forests and lakes. The animals too are making their instinctive preparations for the onset of winter. The caribou are migrating; for them and the deer the rutting season approaches; and the brown bears are making their last forays in the woods before hibernation. In the last days of the Indian Summer he meets those superb natural engineers, the beavers. Filmed and directed by HEINZ SIELMANN
Produced by BBC-tv in association with Norddeutscher Rundfunk
Presented by Nicholas Crocker from the South and West

: SOFTLY,SOFTLY

See The Rabbit by ALAN PLATER with Script editor, Arnold Yarrow Designer. David Spode
Directed and produced by LEONARD LEWIS
Nicholas Sclby Is a member of The Royal Shakespeare Company
A little girl is found wandering on the common, far from home. She says she had been taken there to ' see the rabbits' by a strange man, who then drove away and left her, unharmed but distressed. A similarly distressing experience has also happened to other children within the Wyvern area. The incidents would not usually be of any concern to the Regional Crime Squad. But this time Det.-Con. Box finds himself unusually involved.

: PEOPLE IN CONFLICT

Prison far me means greyness, filth, a terrible loss of being needed. The lack of ability to try and do something for oneself. The completely cutting off from a normal outside social world, and above all, loneliness. One just gives up unless one is terribly, terribly strong. It's something that only a person who has served a sentence of imprisonment can understand.
In the first of two programmes,
Colin Morris talks with Jon Marshall an ex-convict, about the difficulties of attempting to create a new life after years in prison

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.

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.
