: Tuesday's Documentary: 1913

At the end of another decade this documentary looks back not on the 60s or the 50s, but on a year that really meant the end of one era, the start of another- 1913.
The last year when people could ignore the undercurrent of change that was sweeping across Europe. The year of shocks; of pomp and rebellion. The year of opposites; of chaperones and jazz. The year of amazement; surrealism, speed, zeppelins.
London, half a century ago, was the 'premier capital of Europe,' yet the gulf between the top and bottom people was immense. In Berlin Kaiser Wilhelm thought of peace and bigger, more glorious Germany. In Russia the Tsar and his family, four years away from revolution and murder, were celebrating the 300th anniversary of the Romanov dynasty. In Vienna 83-year-old Franz Josef sat on a tottering throne.
Only one of the families who ruled the four great empires from London, Berlin, St Petersburg and Vienna was to survive. Yet everywhere people looked forward to peace and excitement.... Adapted from 1913: The Defiant Swansong by VIRGINIA COWLES

: Hitchcock at the NFT

With Bryan Forbes
In his 70th year Alfred Hitchcock comes to the National Film Theatre in London, to talk to fellow-director Bryan Forbes , and to answer questions from an audience of film enthusiasts about his 50 years as a film-maker.

'...the basis of my work is the making of nightmares with as much realism as possible...'
'...if I made a musical, I'm sure the public would wonder when one of the chorus girls will drop dead. And from what....'
' ...the viewer of television murder can enjoy all the sensations without the mess: no stains to remove, no body to dispose of, no cement to dry...'
'...I'm no different from the man who builds a switchback railway and says I'm going to make this first dip a pretty good one; just you listen to them scream!'
with scenes from Blackmail (1929), The Lady Vanishes (1938), Psycho (1960), The Birds (1963), Torn Curtain (1966)

Recorded at a John Player Lecture

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.
