: Life at Large: Mzima

Portrait of an African Oasis by ALAN and JOAN ROOT
Rain falling on the high, dry Chyulu Hills of Kenya filters through the lava soil until it emerges as cool, running springs at Mzima. Zebra and elephant visit the oasis to drink, but this unusual African portrait is more concerned with the animals that live at the Springs. It is a strange world in which frogs climb trees, birds swim, turtle and crocodile feed side by side, and the lumbering hippopotamus takes on a new grace in the unique underwater photography of ALAN ROOT .

: Film of the Week The Hustler

Paul Newman stars in the third of a short season of his greatest films, tonight with Piper Laurie , George C. Scott Jackie Gleason
Tense, exciting, captivating are not adjectives one would associate with the game of pool - a sort of American snooker - not, that is, until one has seen The Hustler.
Paul Newman , in one of his finest performances, is the ambitious young pool shark and Jackie Gleason the ageing master he is determined to defeat in this outstanding drama set in the sordid, twilight world of the pool hall.
Minnesota Fats really exists. He dominated the American professional billiards circuit throughout the 30s and 40s. Since The Hustler, he has become a minor celebrity playing exhibition matches up and down the country.
Screenplay by ROBERT ROSSEN and SIDNEY CARROLL

: Omnibus: Solzhenitsyn - The Writer and his Government

' For a country to have a great writer,' a character in one of Solzhenitsyn's novels remarks, ' is like having another government.' Alexander Solzhenitsyn is such a writer. Ever since the publication in 1962 of his first novel. One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich , to the literary event a few weeks ago when his latest novel August 1914 reached the West, Solzhenitsyn has been called ' the living conscience of his nation.' In 1970 he received the Nobel Prize for Literature.
A reluctant public figure, he is above all a great writer in the classic Russian tradition of Dostoevsky and Tolstoy, writing about human suffering and the essential spiritual power of man. But for the official Soviet party-line he is 'an alien element.'
Tonight's dramatised documentary compilation tells the story of Solzhenitsyn's trials and tribulations in the labour camps and his single-handed battle against the official suppression of his works. It explores his aims as a writer and a humanist. It is based one documentary texts and extracts from his books.
Solzhenitsyn is played by Freddie Jones

: Both Sides of Europe

A series of discussions between leading Britons, Europeans and other international figures on the future of the European Community - and how it could affect Britain.
3: The End of the Special Relationship?
' The British ... and the United States will have to be somewhat mixed up together in some of their affairs for the mutual and general advantage.' (1941)
Churchill said that if Britain had to choose between the United States and Europe, we would choose America. But if we now choose Europe and the Common Market, how will our relations with America be affected? And what is the American attitude towards the European Community? BRIAN WIDLAKE flies to Washington with Lord Hariech, former British Ambassador to the United States, to discuss these questions with George Ball , former us Under-Secretary of State.

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.
