: Everyman

Your Neighbour's Son
The Making of a Torturer As many as one third of United Nations member states practise torture as a means of enforcing their authority, according to
Amnesty International. This film gives an insight into the mind of the torturer. It tells the story of Michalis Petrou , one of the chief torturers of the Greek Colonels' regime (1967-74), and shows how Petrou was trained. It includes interviews with some of his victims, yet it is not just about what happened in Greece. It is an account of the kind of training and indoctrination that makes young people perpetrate the most terrible acts of mental and physical cruelty. It is an account of what could happen to your neighbour's son.
The repeat showing of this highly acclaimed film introduces next week's
Everyman, a study of the therapy of torture victims. Written and directed by JOERGEN FLINDT PEDERSEN and ERIK STEPHENSEN Produced by EBBE PREISLER FILM/TV APS

The last part of a musical biography in six programmes Requiem: written and presented by Jane Glover

Eiddwen Harrhy (soprano) Diana Montague (alto)

David Schofield , Fiona Walker By 1791 Mozart's spirits were low, his finances in disarray, his health poor. Yet the year was to be marked with some of the most magnificent music that he ever composed, including the Quintet in D, the opera The Magic Flute and the Requiem Mass.
In December 1790 a farewell dinner was given in Vienna for Joseph Haydn , who was about to leave for London. At their parting Mozart was in tears. 'We are taking our last farewell in this world,' he said. But it was Mozart himself who was to die, leaving Haydn to mourn. Lighting JOHN DIXON Sound ADRIAN STOCKS

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.
