: Private Lives

Narrated by Jeffery Boswall The Private Life of the Swan
The mute swan is the largest and most graceful bird in Britain. This film gives a close-up view of its life-style, following first the story of a pair of nesting swans - known to the local water bailiff as William and Mary - and then the story of their offspring until they in their turn start to breed. Mute swans pair up when they are two or three years old by going through a most beautiful courtship display. Most pairs are faithful for life, the ' divorce' rate being less than ten per cent.
Directed and filmed by MAURICE TIBBLES Producer JEFFERY BOSWALL (from Bristol) (Book ₤1.75:page 54)

: Ways of Seeing

(SFTA Award)
Another chance to see the award-winning series with writer and critic John Berger.
In this programme he analyses the images of advertising and publicity and shows how they relate to the tradition of oil painting - similarities of poses, moods, settings, relationships. Colour photography, like oil paint before it, can portray people and things in ways which make us want to envy the people or possess the things.

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.
