Eight documentary films

Becoming a supervisor is not just getting a new job description; what counts is what you find yourself doing. Crucial to this is a clear understanding with your boss as to what your role should be.
This programme looks at how a number of supervisors have worked, with their bosses, towards a clearer understanding of their job.

: Film Matinee: Brief Encounter

concludes the season of British films of the 40s. starring
Celia Johnson , Trevor Howard
This classic love story was made just after the war with an emotional maturity rare in British films. It is the story of Laura and Alec, both married, who fall in love, but cannot endure the feeling of guilt and deceit their love brings. The romance is counter-pointed by Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No 2, varying in volume and expression with Laura's mood.

: Antiques Roadshow

This week: Aberystwyth
Arthur Negus and a team of Britain's leading experts from the world of art and antiques continue on the road. They meet the Public informally and discuss treasured possessions brought along for their assessment. The programmes, presented by Angela Rippon , are full of information, excitement and surprises as people discover the truth about objects that have, sometimes, been gathering dust for years. Perhaps the biggest surprise is that there are more 'finds' than disappointments.

: Songs of Praise

from St Asaph, Clwyd
Although St Asaph claims to have the smallest cathedral in the British Isles, it has played an important part in the life of Welsh Christianity. It was here in the 16th century that Bishop William Morgan completed the first translation of the Bible into Welsh.
Noreen Bray visits St Asaph and talks to some of the cathedral's congregation, among them a member of the cathedral choir DON Rowortii. And we hear about the life of Gerard Manley Hopkins from DERMOT AND WINIFRED DOYLE when they visit St Beuno's Jesuit College, where he wrote much of his poetry.

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.
