: Royal Heritage

The story of Britain's Royal Builders and Collectors in nine films Told by Huw Wheldon
2: The Tudors
The Tudors reigned over one of the most remarkable periods of this nation's history. It was a century when the language itself, no less than the buildings, the music, and the artefacts, moved from the medieval into the modern world.
The Court was the centre of patronage in all the arts, and the age was dominated by three outstanding monarchs, Henry VII , the founder of the dynasty; Henry VIII , probably the most gifted king ever to sit upon the throne; and Elizabeth I, the extraordinary daughter of an extraordinary father.
SIR HUW WHELDON looks at some of the glories of the Royal Collection: the portraits of Holbein, the miniatures and jewels; and also explores the magnificent buildings, including the Palaces of St James and Hampton Court.

from the Empire Pool, Wembley
Britain's premier international tournament is now the established gymnastic guide to the future. Two years ago, Nadia Comaneci won her first major title before winning the European title two weeks later. Last year, Theodora Ungureanu won the women's title and later established her reputation at the Montreal Olympics. Peter Korman won the men's title and in Montreal he became the first American to win an individual Olympic medal. This year's tournament includes both the defending champions, and for the first time Japan has entered two of its champions.

The arts in action
Introduced by Humphrey Burton Tonight: The Human Face The Unretouched Woman
Eve Arnold started work as a photographer 25 years ago in New York. She became a member of -Magnum, the international picture co-operative whose founders included Cartier Bresson and Robert Capa. The condition of woman in harems, Joan Crawford and migrant potato pickers are all photographed without glamour or sentiment. They have that touch of realism which marks the work of an outstanding photo-journalist.
'I learned a basic truth. It is not technique which makes the picture. If the photographer cares about the people in front of the lens and is compassionate then much is given. It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument.' with a second showing of Portraits - Face to Face
A film about the making of portraits, about the artist and the human face. with William Coldstream

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.
