: Film Matinee: El Cid

starring Charlton Heston, Sophia Loren with Gary Raymond, Raf Vallone,
Genevieve Page, John Fraser
Charlton Heston plays the title role in this spectacular epic of 11th-century Spain when the country was divided between small Christian kingdoms and Moorish strongholds. From the confusion of warring factions there emerged an intrepid knight whose exploits earned him the name El Cid - 'the lord'. Some breathtakingly beautiful Spanish locations provide a superb background to this story of romance, chivalry and conflict.

: Songs of Praise

from East Belfast
The leafy avenues of Belmont in the east of the city betray none of the scars of communal strife. The area grew and prospered in the wake and shadow of the famous Harland and Wolff shipyards where, 75 years ago, the great White Star liner the Titanic was launched. 'Unsinkable' was its haunting epithet.
Roger Royle visits the area, talks to some of its people of 'the things that make for its Peace', and joins the united congregation at Belmont
Presbyterian Church for their songs of praise.
From all that dwell below the skies
(Lasst uns Erfreuen); Eternal Father. strong to save (Melita); I bind unto myself today (St Patrick/Gartan); Will your anchor hold; My song is love unknown (Love Unknown):
Nearer, my God, to thee (Bethany); Amazing grace; 0 brother man (Londonderry Air)

: Everyman

The Frontiers of Peace - Jainism in India
The Jains are the world's strictest believers in non-violence. Jain monks will not bathe, for fear of killing the organisms that live on the body; some tie a cloth band across their mouths to protect flying insects from harm. In Ahmedabad, west India - where this film was shot - they run a hospital for animals: no matter how ill, or how great their suffering, the animals are not killed, but allowed to die naturally. In this film Everyman explores the paradoxes of this small but influential sect. The crew was given unique access to the animal hospitals, and was allowed to film the austere life of Jain monks and nuns - including their ritual hair-plucking. The result is a portrait of people who live on the frontiers of peace - far beyond what most would consider the reasonable limits of non-violence.

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.
