: A Taste of Hunger

This summer a group of volunteers spent five days under medical supervision in a Kent farm-house living on nothing but mineral water. By the end of the week reporter Peter France , who joined the fast for Everyman, was 13lbs lighter, and totally converted to the benefits of not eating for a week.
This film follows the group's physical and emotional changes day by day, in an attempt to understand why fasting has played such a prominent part in religious traditions.

Britain's relationship with the Soviet Union was one of the thorniest propaganda problems of the 1940s. Between 1939 and 1941 Russia was a totalitarian aggressor. From 1941 to 1945 she was our gallant ally. After 1945 the previous stereotype soon began to return.

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.
