A serial in eight parts adapted for television by Alice de Grey from the book by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
Adapted for television by:
by Bernard Shaw.
The action takes place on Burrin Pier on the south shore of Galway Bay in Ireland and in a courtyard before the columned portico of a temple, A.D. 3000.
It is just under one thousand years since, in Part 3, 'the thing happened' and by now people who contrive to live for three centuries or more (Shaw calls them 'long-lifers') are firmly established in Ireland. To them for advice come short-lifers from centres of what they fondly believe to be civilisation. These people are as we know them today and to the long-lifers they are not so much mean and cruel as merely childish. Their aims and struggles appear fatuous and irrelevant in the perspective of a three-hundred-year life span.....

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.
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.
