: Songs of Praise

from Letchworth
Eighty years ago this month, a simple ceremony was held in a north Hertfordshire field in which a spade was sunk into the earth: the building of the first Garden City had begun. Letchworth was born of one man's idealistic vision, a reaction against the horror of the industrial worker's lot in overcrowded city slums.
Seamus McKee meets some of today's Garden City dwellers, including Colin Bywaters , who remembers the early days of Letchworth. He joins other Christians from the town in the Free Church to sing their favourite hymns.

: Omnibus

with Richard Baker
1 I'm running a crusade against boredom.' The words are those of the Italian director Franco Zeffi relli, whose film credits include Romeo and Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew with Burton and Taylor, and the epic Jesus of Nazareth. His belief in pure entertainment also extends to his latest production, a film of Verdi's opera La Traviata, starring Placido Domingo. The film opens in Britain this week and may do more than anything ever before to introduce grand opera to a wide audience. This summer Omnibus visited Zeffirelli at his elegant retreat in Positano to talk about his ' crusade' and his sometimes turbulent career.
Also tonight a new batch of plays dealing with contemporary British politics -are they drama or propaganda?

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
