The Hope of a Better World in the Rhondda Valley
An Everyman film with reconstructions taken from original texts.
Seventy-five years ago the Rhondda Valleys were the most famous coal-producing area in the world. The life of the people was harsh, their work dangerous. They had two hopes - the chapels and the unions, religion and socialism.
This film tells the story, in the words of the time, of the rise of these hopes - expressed in bitter strikes and religious revivals - and goes to the Rhondda to see what remains of them today. with ERNEST EVANS , DONNA MURPHY , MARK THOMAS , GILLIAN ELISA THOMAS, JACK WALTERS

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.
