A serial in five parts based on the exploits of Twm Sion Cati Created by LYNN HUGHES
Written by GRIFFITH PARRY Part 1 starring
Sixteenth-century Cardiganshire was a wild and lawless place. The peasants, terrorised by roaming bands of brigands, were also at the mercy of ruthless landowners. The English law meant little west of Offa's Dyke. The peasants looked to one man for protection and justice - the elusive Twm Sion Cati. A name whispered on the wind, a mocking laugh, a fleeting shadow - who was he?

: Everyman: Still Crazy After All These Years

Ten years ago the new age of peace and love proclaimed by the hippies seemed to be around, the corner. Today, most of the 'flower children' have children of their own, and the sober 70s have brought widespread disillusion with the power of flowers. But not all the visions have faded; and not all the visionaries have gone back home to daddy. In this second of two films, Peter France traces the idealists of ten years ago who keep alive the hope of a new age, and who believe that the greater truths are on their side: teepee dweller Sid Rawle, pop star Arthur Brown, founder of Gandalf's Garden Muz Murray, founder of Release Caroline Coon, aristocratic hippy Sir Mark Palmer, and poet Allen Ginsberg.

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.
