: Trials of Life: 8: Last Judgment

The perils of human selection
A new series of documentary films narrated and produced by Roger Mills

Selecting the old and Infirm - and with the change of life, a change in the pattern of selection. No longer is promotion the spur, but rather survival. Charities must choose whom they will help. Old folks' homes whom they will harbour. But for the Christian, the trials of life up to this moment have been one long preparation for that ultimate Trial - the Last Judgment.


Narrator/Producer: Roger Mills
Director: Colin Thomas

: Great Britain - France: 'The Uneasy Years' 1945-1971

Britain's relations with her most immediate neighbours have never been simple. Throughout history the pendulum has swung between enmity and alliance - trust and suspicion - envy and regard.

Now as closer co-operation becomes the order of the day in Europe and Britain negotiates for entry into the Common Market, the history between the two countries' 'love-hate relationship' takes on a new significance.

Can the French forget the humiliation of the Second World War? Are the British insular and unable to adjust to foreign habits? In this first ever simultaneous live transmission on British and French television Couve de Murville ex-Prime Minister of France in Paris; Roy Jenkins, MP Deputy Leader of the Labour Party and Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer in London meet face-to-face to debate the significance of the past and the prospects for the future between France and Britain.
Introduced by Michel Basse in Paris and Derek Hart in London
A BBC/ORTF co-production

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.
