: Italia, Italia

A Personal Perspective by Peter Nichols
' A man who has not been in Italy,' said Dr Johnson, ' is always conscious of an inferiority, from his not having seen what it is expected a man should see.' The importance of Italy as the place to see what a man should see has not diminished. The ancient marbles still stand. But today they have a new dimension, as the symbols of that civilisation which we all share, which is under siege from the modem world.
For PETER NICHOLS , correspondent of The Times in Rome for the past 20 years, the fascination of Italy is that it is against this background that the problems of the 20th century stand out most clearly defined. Italy is a half-capitalist, half-Marxist, Catholic country emerging from the greatest upheaval in its history. Out of the turbulence, new ideas are being generated which will affect us all. There has never been a time in history when Italy has not had something to offer us and we may be at one of those moments now. Italy is a country we do not take seriously enough. We would do well, thinks Peter Nichols , to watch it.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
