: The Great War: Part 1: On the idle hill of summer

Written by John Terraine and Correlli Barnett.
A twenty-six-part history of the 1914-1918 War.
"On the idle hill of summer
Sleepy with the sound of streams
Far I hear the steady drummer
Drumming like a noise in dreams". (A.E. Housman)

Europe in the summer of 1914; Europe at peace yet torn by social unrest: by international tensions, by fear and ambitions that led the Great Powers unsuspectingly yet inevitably to the brink of war.

: Through the Looking Glass

Presented by Harold Williamson 5: Vision
What are the implications for our world, if extra-sensory perception is a reality? Why does science find Esp so difficult to accept, and religion find it so hard to interpret?
Dr Noel Dilly , an anatomist, sets out to prove that ESP is just fanciful nonsense.
Ted Bastin , a physicist, and Malcolm Bessent , who claims to be psychic, suggest why they believe it is a reality.
Tony Buzan and Fr Ken Leech put the whole question in the wider context of spiritual sensitivity and mystic vision.

: The Love Girl and the Innocent

by ALEXANDER SOLZHENITSYN translated by NICHOLAS BETHELL and DAVID BURG A Play of the Month presentation starring
Set in a Soviet labour camp in 1945, this play tells the story of Nemov, a trusting and naive army officer who has been sent to the camp from the front on charges of anti-Soviet agitation, and Lyuba, a girl prisoner who is driven to evade the struggle for survival by sleeping around with the camp officials and well-fixed prisoners. The story of their love affair is set against the background of self-seeking squabbles and the fight for survival of other groups of internees.
The play dealt out a lavish, authentic two hours and showed how some people try to maintain their standards, despite disgusting odds. (DAILY MIRROR)

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.
