: The Living Isles: 5: Time and Tide

A ten-part natural history of Britain and Ireland
Presented by Julian Pettifer

Our coastline is always on the move. Atlantic storms lash Ireland's Aran Islands, the North Sea erodes the cliffs of Norfolk and the Severn Bore powers far inland. In the past, entire forests were overwhelmed as the sea-level rose, setting these islands apart within their 10,000 mile-long frontier with the sea.
Today, in response to the rhythm of the tides, wildlife flourishes in this restless no-man's land. Choughs and brambling glean the shores of Kerry; waders mass on the mudflats of Morecambe Bay; and on the coast of East Anglia, sand and shingle offer sanctuary to seals and avocets. In summer, in a rocky Cornish cove, the holiday-maker can discover a menagerie of bizarre creatures - even limpets, fighting in their rockpool world between the tides.

: Songs of Praise

Shalom Alaychem!
A celebration of Jewish-
Christian dialogue from the West London Synagogue.
Over the past 100 years many Jewish refugees have come to this country to escape oppression. Life in the East
End of London has been hard and sometimes threatening. Increasingly, however, small groups of Jews and Christians have met to explore each other's beliefs; these groups have grown steadily, culminating in tonight's celebration of that dialogue and the common tradition of the Psalms. For the programme, black Christians have been learning Hebrew, and Jews have been learning Catholic Gelineau chants.
Roger Royle meets William Simpson , a founder of the Council of Christians and Jews, and Rabbi Hugo Gryn , who plays host to the programme. The Rev Mark Goodridge , a youth worker from a black church in Croydon, talks about counselling young Blacks whose problems echo the anti-Semitism the Jewish community faced.
Sh'ma Yisroel (Max Helfman );
Jubilate (Psalm 100); The God of Abraham praise (Leoni); I will call upon the Lord (Psalm 18); Tell out my soul (Woodlands); Psalm 64

: Everyman

'The Boys were Dead ...' Ten years ago, in the New Year of 1976, Northern
Ireland suffered one of the worst instances of terrorist violence since the Troubles began.
On 4 January five Catholics from South Armagh were shot dead. Twenty-four hours later, as relatives of the murdered were appealing on television against retaliation, a minibus carrying local
Protestant mill workers home was ambushed. Ten were killed. This moving film revisits the villages of Whitecross and Bessbrook on the tenth anniversary of the killings - and tells the remarkable story of a community still united by grief, where the transient headlines have become part of daily reality.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
