: Freshers

Two thousand 18-year-olds are about to enter Liverpool University. They are saying goodbye to a way of life - school, parents, home. They stand on the threshold of adulthood and an adventure that is daunting and exciting. It is particularly difficult for
Gillian Wake. She is blind.
Somehow she must cope in a sea of young people all intent on themselves. She seeks solace in the Kop at Anfield, where the surge and murmur of the crowd brings a closeness that a campus cannot match.

Cannon in Flowers
A film about Poland and the music of Frederic Chopin. When General Jaruzelski imposed martial law on Poland in 1981 their national radio and TV were ordered to play Chopin continuously, in an attempt to keep the nation calm. But the composer
Schumann, in an earlier age of oppression saw the irony: 'If the Tsar knew what a dangerous enemy he had in these simple, romantic pieces, he would forbid them altogether. Chopin's music is cannon hidden in flowers.' For the Poles, Chopin has always seemed in tune with their own chequered, and too often tragic, history. This film, commissioned by Omnibus from Polish director WITOLD STARECKI, shows how Poland yesterday and today uses, needs and interprets the music of its greatest composer. It becomes a portrait of the Polish people, and their obsession with Chopin, filmed at an autumn Chopin festival, during a month of performance, competition and argument. Film cameraman WIT DABAL

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.
