: HRH The Prince of Wales: A Vision of Britain

In this special Omnibus presentation, Prince Charles gives a personal view of architecture and the environment. Over the past few years the Prince's s passionate speeches on architecture have focused national attention on the way we are altering our urban environment.
In this film, the Prince looks at the huge changes facing our cities and countryside. After the mistakes of the post-war years, the Prince asks can we get it right this time, with this 'second chance ? He visits people in their own homes to find out what they like and what they don t. He considers what we can learn from great European cities of the past like Siena and new towns of the future like
Seaside in Florida. He looks at our planning regulations and architectural education and affirms his commitment to community architecture and the inner cities.
My chief object has been to try and create discussion about the design of the built environment; to rekindle an alert awareness of our surroundings; inspire a desire to observe; but, most importantly, to challenge fashionable theories of a professional establishment which has made the layman feel he has no legitimate opinions.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
