: The Living Isles

A ten-part natural history of Britain and Ireland
Presented by Julian Pettifer 6: Out of the Flames
In the wake of the wildwood felled by our ancestors, spread the new landscapes of heath and moor. Desolate in winter and forsaken by most creatures, they come to colourful and busy life in summer. On sandy southern heathlands rare smooth snakes emerge from hibernation to hunt, and gaudy sand lizards battle for a mate. Overhead the hobby swoops to pluck dragonflies and swallows from the air.
The northern moorlands are the domain of red grouse, hen harrier, peregrine falcon and the wailing red-throated diver. Here red deer now roam the open glens where forests once echoed to their roar. This is the natural history of our most ancient landscapes made by man. Photography ANDREW ANDERSON EAMON DE BUITLEAR. SIMON KING Film editor CHRIS ORRELL

: Songs of Praise

from Fishguard
Armed French convicts attacking the Pembrokeshire coast near Fishguard were the last invaders to land on British soil. A band of local women tricked and forcibly repelled that invasion. But local inhabitants extend a welcome to the modern invaders: the passengers who travel on the daily ferry to and from Ireland, and the tourists who relish the scenery around this west Wales town. Ian Gall experiences for himself the Welsh 'croeso' (welcome) as he meets Alun Cornock working in the cowshed on his son's farm and Elizabeth Bowyer educating her
Sunday-school children about the Third World.
Fierce raged the tempest o'er the deep (St Aelfred);
Let all the world in every corner sing;
Alleluia, Alleluia, give thanks to the risen Lord (Alleluia No 1);
O! No ddoi'r nefol wynt (Fflint);
What a friend we have in Jesus (What a friend);
In heavenly love abiding (Penlan);
Light of the world (Berwyn);
Angel voices, ever singing (Angel Voices)

: The Hammer and the Cross

An Everyman series
1: From Russia to Nicaragua '... the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world.... the opium of the people....'
Karl Marx 's famous description of religion suggests it owes its existence to deformities in the social order. Once the new socialist order was established, Marx argued, religion would wither away.
Today almost one third of the world's population lives under Marxist rule, yet the churches in Communist countries show few signs of collapsing. In the USSR the percentage of the population who attend church is higher than in the UK.
This four-part series examines the relations between Christianity and Communism worldwide.
In this programme Everyman looks at the world's oldest and newest Marxist-inspired revolutions. It shows the price the Russian Orthodox Church has paid to survive in the Soviet Union. And it travels to Nicaragua, to investigate the conflict between those Christians who support the revolution and those who are actively opposed to it.

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.
