: Omnibus: In Prison A World of its Own

"In the world outside, fantasies are limited by the lack of time to indulge in them. In prison there are no checks, no reins. Fantasies are all we have. When the doors are banged shut at night then we are alone. Free to withdraw into the world of our own choosing."

Those are the words of the author 'Zeno' who narrates this film about prison life as seen through the paintings, poetry, music, and personal thoughts of the men inside. 'Zeno' himself won two awards for his writing when serving a life sentence.
Prisoners interviewed by Tony Parker.

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.
