: Reap the Wild Wind

In the mid-19th century, the only link between the lush Mississippi valley and the industrial cities of New England was the hurricane-lashed Atlantic seaboard - plied by the great sailing ships, peopled by courageous crews and lawless scavengers. DeMille's epic film reflects the drama of those perilous times.

Art in the Third Reich
Second of two programmes. The Propaganda Machine
Hitler believed that 'the right use of propaganda is an art'.
This film examines the use of the mass media in the Third Reich. Television, radio, film, and the party rally became the most effective means of controlling public opinion. Architecture was the most visible and lasting expression of fascist ideology, and many of its buildings are still in use, from the autobahn network, the great arenas of Nuremberg and Berlin, to the countless party buildings all over the country. Fascist art did not emerge overnight, and toyed with a traditional German look. Mozart and Wagner, Durer and Holbein provided a distinguished camouflage sustained by the Propaganda Ministry which employed over 400 cameramen to record the work of the party's artists. From mass housing to the film musical, the arts and entertainments of the Third
Reich were the messengers of a barbaric regime.

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.
