: MacLeod in Japan

The last of three films in which Donny MacLeod enjoys an inside view of an exciting, enigmatic country. Nagasaki
Here the missionaries first made landfall in Japan - and here the Christian faith still flourishes in an otherwise Buddhist country. To Nagasaki came the first Dutch traders - and continued to do so while the rest of Japan sealed itself off from the outside world. But the rich past was eclipsed by the cataclysmic events of 9 August 1945 when a plutonium bomb was exploded above the city. DONNY MACLEOD meets survivors. And he hears the message they have for the rest of the world.

: The Four Seasons

The last of four films about the common experiences which highlight people's lives. The Last Taboo
Death is the one experience of life in this country which few people face up to frankly. The last film meets undertaker Paul Mills for whom death is a way of life, and- Dr Derek Doyle of St Columba's Hospice in Edinburgh, who ensures that his patients can die with dignity. But mainly it is about Scots actor Victor Carin , who faced up to his imminent death from cancer with inspiring courage, wit and cynicism.
Reporter Bernard Falk found it the most moving encounter of his long career. He talked to Victor at home with his teenage daughter, Kate, in a monastery trying to find some peace of mind, and at the Hospice where he finallj died on 2 January this year.

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.
